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: 40%
Predominating colors: Still green with mostly yellow with hints of orange and red
Rating: Nearing Peak
While there is still green in many places, the leaves are changing fast and the wind has blown several off the trees. This weekend and over the next would be ideal to still see some color.
This weekend is packed with more events!
The Historic Amsterdam League host the annual “Ghosts of the Past Tour”. Do you have the courage to walk the historic Green Hill Cemetery in the dark? There is only one way to find out!
The 1st Annual Palatine Bridge 19th C. Themed Old- Fashioned County Fair is this weekend. The event boasts craft and food vendors, children’s activities including pony rides, music and more!
George Steele will be on hand at Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site and Landis Arboretum for an “Owl Prowl” this weekend. During this hootin’ good family program listen for, look for, and should you be so lucky, see owls. Learn about the owls of the region and explore these nocturnal birds of prey.
The circa 1729 Van Alstyne Homestead & Museum hosts their 7th Annual Soup Tasting, Craft Fair, and Fall Harvest Festival on Saturday.
