Fall is a magical time in northern forests. The understory plants and trees are working hard to store the summer’s bounty below ground in preparation for the long winter sleep and in anticipation of the spring to come! Join Forest Ecologist, Cindy Hale, to take a walk in the woods and see for yourself some of the amazing strategies that native plants use to survive and thrive in northern Minnesota. Learn to see the signs of plants interacting with the soil, and each other, as they make their way through the change of seasons.
