About the Event
Goldenrods, thoroughworts, and bonesets begin to bloom as the leaves begin to change color. Among the first to display their electrifying colors are sumac, sourwood, and sassafras – parts of which are edible and medicinal. Rabbit tobacco appears in fields, and along embankments, spicebush berries dot the forest canopy, and non-native chestnuts start to drop their nuts.
Early fall is a wonderful time in the North Georgia Mountains. Explore the botanical diversity and enjoy the colorful views of Southern Appalachia with us this autumn.
