COLUMBUS - For many Ohioans, autumn represents pumpkin-carving, the harvest season, bonfires and corn mazes. Spotting the first glimpse of fall color - seeing the leaves changing to strong reds, vivid yellows and bold oranges - is a favorite fall activity. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) will be featuring several opportunities to help people find the best locations to see fall color this year.
"Autumn is a great time to explore the outdoors and experience everything Ohio has to offer," said ODNR Director James Zehringer. "Fall provides the perfect opportunity for everyone to explore our beautiful state while enjoying the colors of the season."
Ohio is expected to once again enjoy a beautifully colored fall season. Currently, ODNR Fall Color Forester Casey Burdick expects northern Ohio leaves to reach their peak color the second week of October, central Ohio the third week and southern Ohio the fourth week.
People interested in finding out where the most captivating leaves will be throughout the upcoming fall color season should check out fallcolor.ohiodnr.gov, ODNR's premier guide to Ohio's fall color season.
This website includes:
• Weekly color updates and information to help plan a fall color adventure.
• Weekly videos from Burdick that will highlight color hot spots around the state and provide information about some of Ohio's 100-plus tree species.
• Links for fall activities, scenic road trips and more, including unique overnight accommodations at Ohio State Parks.
