Fall Colors Walk for Kids – Saturday October 21

The Fall Colors Walk for Kids is a walk along the trails of Thorn Creek Woods amidst trees of all species, as they transition from their summer green leaves to shades of red, yellow, orange, gold, russet and even purple – the colors of autumn. Discover not only why leaves change in the fall, but why different trees turn different colors. Explore what plants do to prepare for the long months of winter.

Fall Colors Walk for Kida at Thorn Creek Woods is October 21.
Participants should be prepared to walk over 2 miles outdoors
on natural surface trails across uneven terrain.

This program for children is sponsored by Thorn Creek Audubon Society.

Saturday, October 21

Free.  Ages 12 or younger
