We still have a few days left of summer, but the transition to autumn has begun. Butterflies and birds alike are fueling for their long journeys south, and the prairies are golden and purple with late summer blooms like sneezeweed and gentians. Squirrels are caching for the season to come, and the trees are beginning to change.
Find a time to visit the Center while the prairies are still filled with yellows and purples, and the sun’s rays are embracing the hemisphere. Take a walk along one of our many boardwalks and see how the ponds are preparing for the change in season as well!
