Why do leaves change color and fall off their trees? What animals are rustling through those crunchy, fallen leaves, and what are they doing? Why don’t we hear birds, crickets, and bees anymore?
This online program will introduce the seasonal dynamics of the nature of Massachusetts in fall, including the plants and animals that experience it. You’ll also leave with ideas and suggestions for observing, appreciating, and supporting nature near home.
