The Missouri Department of Conservation is just full of awesome resources for residents and non-resident to utilize while in the Ozarks and one of the things I check regularly is the fall color update that’s updated September through November.
The fall color update is a continually updated article in which fall foliage is segregated by region so you can stay up to date on when leaves are changing colors and where.
Last Thursday, the article was updated to reflect the current foliage changes all around Missouri and the Ozark region’s color has barely begun to turn. The Department of Conservation reported that although bright spots of red sumac can be seen along the roadsides, it’s most likely due to herbicides applied by road maintenance to keep the roadsides visible.
I don’t know about you but I will be using this resource throughout the fall so I can pick the perfect time to spend a day in Branson, surrounded by beautiful fall colors.
