This weekend enjoy a Northern Michigan fall color tour in Leelanau County. The Leelanau Conservancy has created five fall color tour routes that will take visitors past protected natural areas, farms and private conservation easements. On Saturday, October 11, 2014 Leelanau Conservancy staffers Tom Nelson and Leslee Spraggins will be available to answer questions at the Sedlacek Farm (Loop B) from 1-4 pm. Stop by for some cider and feel free to ask any questions!

Another event on the weekend agenda is the opportunity to Explore Kehl Lake Natural Area on Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 10 am

Enjoy visiting this beautiful natural area with guides who know it well, Ann McInnis and Mary Smart. Spectacular colors are just one clue that plants and animals are preparing for a Leelanau winter. Why do some trees drop their leaves after changing colors? How are other native species of plants getting ready? If most native animals remain active all winter, how will they acquire the energy they need to survive and escape becoming someone’s dinner? Many questions lead to new discoveries. Sign up here.
