Picking apples, carving pumpkins, and viewing the autumn leaves; fall activities bring joyous moments that stay with us forever. Are you looking for a way to spice up fall activities for your family and take a look at stunning autumn leaves?
As fall approaches the water becomes cold, oceans seem to retreat, long summer days begin to fall short, and our sun kissed glows seem to disappear. When summer comes to an end, everyone thinks fun family activities do as well. However, this is not the case. Recover from the departure of summer by embracing the beauty of fall: autumn leaves. The autumn leaves bring a beauty to fall that can turn a usual fall day into a day of fun spectating for your family. New England autumn leaves provide one of the greatest fall activities for sight seers to observe. The collection of orange, yellow, and red autumn leaves have many “ooing and ahhing.”
Do you know why or how the autumn leaves change their colors? Trees use the sunlight for energy and food. They go through a process known as photosynthesis and ultimately attain their green color. The green leaves soon fade and the autumn leaves take over. The autumn leaves begin to take over because there is less sunlight in the day, and the amount of chlorophyll in the leaf decreases. This causes the leaves to lose their green color. When the green starts to fade, those colors become visible and the autumn leaves start to shine through. The changing into autumn leaves creates an opportunity for many memorable fall activities.
Turning an ordinary October day into one to remember is simpler than you think. At Southwick’s Zoo, we are able to embrace the beauty of autumn leaves not just on the ground, but in the sky as well.
