Fall Colors Walk at Chippewa Run in Empire

  • This event has passed.


October 20, 2012
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Chippewa Run
Leelanau County/Empire, MI United States

Why do leaves turn colors and ultimately fall to the ground? Did you know leaves have a natural sunscreen? Bug repellent? Conservancy docents Lou Ricord, Ann Mason and Mary Smart discuss these and other fall color topics as they explore the Chippewa Run Natural Area. Chippewa Run is unusual because of its diverse habitats. Within its preserved 110-acres, Chippewa Run has wetlands, streams and ponds, old fields, red pine and spruce/fir stands, hardwoods and an old apple orchard to explore.

If you plan to attend, please call 231.256.9665 so they may provide the best experience possible.

*Please note: no dogs on docent-led walks, which last about 2 hours.
