Fall color coming soon!

Ohio ranks among the world's most beautiful places once the fall-color season hits, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has made it easy to find turning trees. Inside the fall foliage homepage, you'll find:

  • Interactive map with color reports from across the state
  • Maps for scenic drives in five regions
  • Scientific explanation of why leaves change
  • Tree ID assistance
  • Weekly color podcast starting Sept. 30

In the Oct. 1 Venture column, I'll have a rundown of my favorite viewing places. Beaver Creek State Park, pictured above, is a good place to start. If you want to share your favorite perch, shoot me an email.
