Why they change, when to see them and what to do with them
HUNTSVILLE, ON, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - As the days grow shorter and the autumn
leaves start to fall, have you ever wondered how and why? Have you ever found
yourself amidst a rush of colour in awe of what may arguably be the loveliest
season of the year?
A new web site, www.huntsvilleadventures.com, offers everything from why
autumn leaves change to a "leaf watch" that allows visitors to check on the
day to day status of Muskoka's fall colours. It is the "go to" site for
information on what to do, where to dine and where to stay in Huntsville, Lake
of Bays and Algonquin Park.
Robin Tapley is "Father Nature." He is a naturalist, bush pilot,
astronomer, ornithologist (bird expert), nature trails director,
environmentalist and expedition leader to the Yukon, Antarctica, the Galapagos
and Costa Rica. His mission is to share the natural world with those around
him and make known the many opportunities for adventure in our own backyards.
Helena Renwick is a closet leafer. Year after year she would bring the
perfect leaves home only to find them in a box at a much later date. Recently,
however, Helena and her three children, Iain (7), Ally (10) and Carling (12)
have become leaf artisans. They have amassed a treasure chest of leaf crafts
and can't wait until the leaves change once again.
Both Tapley and Renwick are available for interviews throughout autumn.
Tapley can ...
- make the science behind the autumn colours ridiculously simple
- discuss the many ways to take in the leaves this fall - by foot; by
air; by bike; by canoe .. by "leaf watch"!
