Hike and learn about autumn leaves
Ranger Hike: Fall Colors

Trees here are beautiful in autumn, and for those who are curious about why, there's a Portage Parks ranger who can tell you on Nov. 14.

An event called “Ranger Hike: Fall Colors,” presented by Portage Parks and Recreation, will provide a guided hike through South Westnedge Park, 9010 S. Westnedge Ave., to examine fallen leaves and explain the special process trees go through to prepare for winter. The hike begins at 2 p.m., and registration is required.
