Autumn Spectacular

Many people believe autumn to be the most beautiful season of the year. This program documents the dramatic spectacle that plants undergo in their transition from summer green to the brilliant yellows, oranges, purples and reds of fall. During the program, you will look at trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, flowers and fruits of the fall season. How and why these changes occur will be discussed. The photo journey will travel to natural areas, as well as local neighborhoods, parks and gardens.
