New Hampshire in the fall in spectacular!

Autumn’s arrival signals a transition time as the natural world pivots from a busy, productive summer to a season of rest and winter survival.

  • Fall gardening strategies to create and observe critical wildlife habitat
  • Fun techniques to bring the natural world inside through terrariums and autumn art
  • Easy daily activities to connect with nature and awaken your senses!
