Forest Service revamps Fall Colors site Print E-mail
Published: Wednesday, 21 September 2011 06:59

The USDA Forest Service has expanded its Fall Colors 2011 Web site and is providing a telephone hotline with fall foliage updates and trip-planning information.
“Fall is a special time when nature’s work transforms our landscapes into a natural patchwork of vibrant hues,” said Tom Tidwell, chief of the U.S. Forest Service. “Because the Forest Service is the national source for tree expertise, we are ready to help Americans plan their trips and appreciate the incredible show.”

The agency’s revamped Fall Colors 2011 Web site includes clickable maps that link to forest-by-forest fall color information and to state tourism and fall color Web sites.

Weather conditions in all areas impact peak viewing dates, so information provided on the Forest Service Web site will help visitors plan their trips.

Fall Colors 2011 also offers a variety of family activities such as coloring pages for kids, instructions on how to make a leaf book, and links to a tree database. Photographs from visitors nationwide will be added to the site throughout the fall season.

The Forest Service also has turned on its Fall Colors Hotline: 1-800-354-4595. It provides audio updates on the best places, dates and routes to take for peak viewing of fall colors in national forests.
