It’s finally fall!
The weather is turning and so are the leaves!
The ash trees by Ray Deaton Lake (a.k.a. "Audubon Lake) at the back
of the Garden provide some of the best fall color at MBG. When you get just enough wind the golden
leaves dance in the wind all around. It’s a picture perfect scene.
weather will be perfect tomorrow for our annual Halloween Hike that begins in
this beautiful spot and takes you and your family on a fun hike through the
Garden, with stops at stations where kids can visit with some “friendly” Halloween
characters. Go on a bone dig with
Indiana Bones, learn how to identify animal skulls with Professor Fang, make
your own apple cider with Little Orchard Annie, and even get some toy and candy
treats along the way.
Visit My Big
Backyard to see what the Playhouse Pals have in store! Finish your day off with time around the
campfires and listening to some great music.
Before you know it, winter will be here and all those leaves will be on
the ground…so catch it while you can!
