I LOVE NY started the “New York Fall Foliage Report” on September 12 and will continue until the end of the foliage season, around the first or second week in November. Montgomery County has started its own annual report this year as well.
Reporting station: Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, Fort Hunter
Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 30%
Predominating colors: Still green with more red, orange, yellow coming out
This week has more color coming through with yellows and oranges and some reads. It would be a great time to take a ride and see the fall foliage. There are also many events happening on Saturday throughout the county!
The Village of Ames Museum will be open 9am to 3pm.
Celebrate the fall harvest and take advantage of your last chance of the season to visit Old Fort Johnson and the 1918 exhibit. This open house features outdoor baking, fresh apple cider pressing and other family activities. Free admission all day, donations are always welcome. The event is 10am-4pm.
From 11am-4pm, the Glen Conservancy and the 77th NY Regimental Balladeers will host Harvest Fest in the hamlet of Glen. Events will take place in and around Conservancy Hall and will include activities at the Glen Cottage Farms, and at the Rustic Red House at the Glen Country Store at the confluence of Routes 30A and 161. Music, face painting, pumpkin painting, flower arranging, and more.
