  • Beautiful autumn foliage is coming to the New England states.
  • Blue-winged Teal are long-distance migrants; therefore, one of the first to migrate south. By September, large flocks are arriving in Texas. Some will go as far south as South America.
  • September and October are the peak time to listen to the music of bugling elk.
  • September through December is the time to hunt for and harvest ginseng.
  • September bears catching salmon in Alaska are their largest, with thick coats of fur. Also, the Alaskan forests are turning gold with changing cottonwoods, birches, and willows.
  • For more flowers without buying more seeds, collect seeds from zinnias and marigolds, and spread them in flower beds this fall or in the spring. For impatiens, take slips off and put them in water until roots grow. Plant in pots; then transplant them in the spring. They will likely grow bigger flowers than the previous year.
