Campfires and Bigfoot

Alabama State Parks is proud to be a Community Partner of Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. We join with them in their efforts to share the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace in every park across the country. Through educational programs, learning trails, trainer courses, special events, and more, Alabama State Parks is able to highlight what it means to be good stewards of the land.

The Science of Leaf Color

Temperatures are dropping, daylength is decreasing, and there are fewer hours of sunlight each day. These things trigger the trees to begin making changes for the cooler months ahead. These changes affect leaf pigmentation and cause the beautiful fall colors we see in Alabama State Parks and beyond.
