“I’m ready.” says Mother Nature. “September heralds the beginning of an amazing time of revolution. I know each season well! I celebrate the aromas of the leaves changing from green to brilliant splashes of red and yellow. I see my migrating friends fly towards more warmth. The days are shorter, and many of my small mammals look for places to spend the winter underground. That’s OK. I’ll see them again in the spring. The Christmas fern stays green and keeps me company.”
“My little human friends raise my spirits when they visit me at Hobbs State Park the 2nd Saturday of every month. I’m going to read to them September 9th at 10:30 a.m. in the Hobbs State Park visitor center. I think it will be about autumn in the woods, and how my animal friends prepare for winter. I think after that we will do a nature craft together. Yes, that sounds like fun. I love reading to everyone, but most of my stories are for those 3 – 6 years of age. “
Meet Mother Nature in the lobby of the Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area visitor center located on Hwy 12 just east of the Hwy 12/War Eagle Road intersection.

Mother Nature adds, “Let me leave a thought for my adult friends. It’s a quote from John Muir, one of my favorite friends.”:
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” - John Muir
