Best viewing : Pinery's Oaks have begun changing to their rich copper fall colour while Cherries, Fragrant Sumacs, Wild Grape and Virginia Creeper are adding lots of yellows and reds to the park landscape. Cycle the Savanna Trail for a great fall overview, or hike the Lookout and Wilderness trails for a look at Witch Hazel's yellow fall blooms. Riverside Trail will give you a panoramic view along the Old Ausable Channel of almost all colours Pinery trees have to offer. The large Tamarack along the channel is beginning to add the brilliant yellow that only this coniferous leaf-dropper can. Check out the rare Sassafras found in the southern section of the Park, which is turning brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow. The Pinery Visitor Centre is open on weekends and holidays from 10 AM to 5 PM, and naturalists are available to answer your questions. Find out about our interpretive programs and special events on the Friends of Pinery website (http://www.pinerypark.on.ca/pdf%20files/active.pdf) or on out Twitter feed (@PineryProvPark). We hope to see you soon!
Woodland Caribou - Report Date : October 23, 2014
Dominant Colour : Yellow
Colour Change : 100% - Leaf Fall : 100%
Best viewing : As they say in the newspaper business "30", which means, this is the last edition of the Fall Colour Report for Woodland Caribou Park for 2014. Leaves have changed, fallen and have begun to make fertilizer. Our biologist was in the park last week for the final trip of the season. Although she enjoyed some golden tamarack she reported the leaves as having "dropped". As an aside, years ago I brought a sugar maple from the deep south of Ontario back to Red Lake. Although it has persisted...as a bush mind you, once in a while it turns colour. Its just starting this week! Poor thing, its really confused, but it is the last bit of fall colour I will see till next year. Don't forget about Woodland Caribou over the winter, follow us on Facebook and enjoy photos from the park in every season. It wont be long till the Ontario Parks reservation lines are open again - its never too early to begin planning. See you next year.
