How will this year's growing season affect the fall colors in Catoctin Mountain Park? Meet a ranger at the Hog Rock Parking Lot at 1:00 p.m. on any of the above dates for a short walk to learn why the leaves change in the fall and how weather affects fall color.  Is there a scientific reason or does mysterious Jack Frost deserve the credit?

During closures of Park Central Road, the program will meet at the Chestnut Picnic Area. Please check our website or call on the day of the program.
