Eastern Region National Forests reports

Last Fall Color Report of the Season – Nov. 9, 2017

Color is winding down around the Region; therefore, this will be the last fall color update for the 2017 season. Please visit the Eastern Region website and unit websites for winter recreation information. There are lots of fun activities to do after the leaves have fallen and the snow begins to blanket the trees.

Shawnee National Forest Fall color has peaked on the Shawnee National Forest! Due to the dry summer, fall colors were not as brilliant this year. But there was some color…check out the pictures of our Forest on Flickr, Twitter and Facebook!

Wayne National Forest The Wayne National Forest is still at peak fall color, but the climax of this year’s autumn show won’t last much longer. We hope you can take time to enjoy it while it lasts. Oak trees are shining in reds and golds, and maples flaunt a kaleidoscope of every fall color. Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Mark your calendars for our Wild Weekend Discovery Series this Saturday, November 11, from 10 – 11 a.m.! Kids aged preschool through 5th grade can come learn about the changes that all animals go through from birth to adulthood; some animals like frogs change much more than others. Meet at the Wayne National Forest headquarters located off Highway 33 south of Nelsonville. Please preregister by calling 740-753-0542.

Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest The fall color season has wound down across the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. It was a beautiful fall with really enjoyable colors shown throughout the forest. Most of our campgrounds have now closed but some remain open through the fall for visitors but have no services at the sites. For more details on the Wisconsin Fall Color Report visit
