Now that the leaves are falling to the ground, it's a great time to take a nature walk and admire the changes happening all around us. Bundle up, and bring a notebook and pencil, or bags to collect items or trash. Record observations, make sketches, pick up a leaf or acorn for further exploration. Talk about what you see, use your five senses (well, maybe not taste!), appreciate how Mother Nature is preparing for winter and storing energy for next spring. Or turn it into a service project with gloves and trash bags to pick up any litter that you come across and know that those obstacles won't be uncovered again when the snow melts.
