Chilly weather is here and with it has come a burst of fall colors. Oak, hickory and maple leaves are exhibiting brilliant shades of red, yellow and orange.
Oaks (Quercus spp.) are native trees in the Clear Lake watershed. They provide habitat and food for a variety of wildlife and their nutrient-dense leaves nourish the soil as the leaves compost each year.
