September is here and autumn is rolling in! The leaves are just beginning to change—especially the earliest species to lose its summer green hue, the red maple—and we are looking forward to the change of season with a fun lineup of fall-focused online programs.

Learn how to identify hawks in flight just in time for the height of fall hawk migration, dive deeper into the unique nature of fall, take your feeder watching and backyard birding to the next level with the beginner birdwatching series, and more. Our expert instructors and online platform make learning about autumn more accessible than ever!

And don’t forget—the 2021 Picture This: Your Great Outdoors photo contest closes on September 30, just a few short weeks away, so submit your beautiful nature photography today. Here are five photos submitted to the contest in past years, highlighting the awesome nature of autumn.
