Fruit, Foliage, and Fall Wildlife

Discover the magic of fall in the Smokies and seek out the many colorful fruits and leaves of the mountains and carefully consider the wildlife they attract. On several short walks at various elevations and habitats, we’ll learn to identify the trees, shrubs and vines in part by their unique colored leaves and fruit, as well as by other simple clues. Discover signs of wildlife that rely on this fruit to fuel their migration and movements or to supplement their resident diet. These birds, bears, boomers, boars and other animals make up the fall wildlife shuffle, a natural necessity. Along the way we’ll sample some fruit, see majestic views, begin to unravel the confusing fall warblers and may even catch a glimpse of other wildlife.
