Learn about the how and why of fall colors

The Highlands Nature Center will host a program on fall colors from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Naturalist Patrick Brannon will lead activities about how leaves change color, deciduous versus coniferous trees, and the winter survival strategies of each. Afterwards, visitors will be led on a walk through the Botanical Garden and will learn to identify many species of trees by leaf type, shape, and color.

The cost for this event is $2 per person, and the program is appropriate for all ages. Advanced registration is requested due to limited space.
