I LOVE NY started the “New York Fall Foliage Report” on September 11 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: 90%
Predominating colors: Oranges dominate, yellows and reds here and there
Rating: Past Peak
While the foliage is past peak, color is still holding. Wind and rain has knocked down the earlier changes but the last are emerging.
This week brings a variety of activities including Halloween, live music, and more!
The Landis Arboretum is hosting Star Parties on Saturday and Sunday. View the stars and planets in Landis’ dark skies with members of the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers. A variety of telescopes will be set up for viewing the heavens, revealing nebulae, star clusters, galaxies, double stars, planets, and other celestial objects. Guests of all ages are always welcome. Feel free to bring your own telescope. Registration is recommended. Star Parties are cancelled if the skies are mostly cloudy. If in doubt, call Alan French at (518)374-8460.
