Pinery - Report Date : November 12, 2014
Dominant Colour : Brown
Colour Change : 100% - Leaf Fall : 90%
Best viewing : Most of Pinery's leaves have turned their brilliant colours and fallen to the forest floor or the Old Ausable River Channel surface only to be broken down and used for nutrients elsewhere. A few mighty Oaks are still clinging to to their dried, brown leaves in various areas of the Park. The trees in the forest have changed from rich tapestries of colour to beautiful and majestic silhouettes. We prepare now, as the trees have, for a magnificent, active and exciting winter season. Pinery is open throughout the winter for tobogganing, snowshoeing, skiing, hiking and more. 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!
Rondeau - Report Date : November 13, 2014
Dominant Colour : Yellow/Orange
Colour Change : 100% - Leaf Fall : 80%
Best viewing : Almost all of Rondeau's leaves have turned colour and fallen to the forest floor. There are quite a few hardwood trees scattered throughout the park that are refusing to give up all of their leaves. Shades of yellow and orange are still the predominant colours of these remaining leaves. As the temperature begins to slowly drop the winter season will soon be upon us. Rondeau Provincial Park is open throughout the winter months for tobogganing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking and more. The Visitor Centre is currently open on weekends from 10 AM to 4PM, and park naturalists are available to answer your questions. Find out more about our unique interpretive programs and special events on the "Friends of Rondeau" website (http://www.rondeauprovincialpark.ca/).
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.
