They dance, they flit, and they flutter as they fall. Their colors paint beautiful palettes in autumn. Can you guess we’re describing our Lovable Leaves? Have you ever thought about what leaves do after they fall? Please join Friends of Glen Providence for a story about our leaves and learn about their value. We’ll then go on a scavenger hunt and create something special using some of our leaves.

This is the final 2022 installment of our new Seasonal Children’s Series! The walk will be led by Julie Smith, a naturalist with a background in environmental geology. She has led enchanting Winter, Spring, and Summer children’s events this year – join us in late Fall!
