The Carolinas, especially our mountainous regions, serve as a world-wide destination for viewing beautiful autumn leaves, but from year to year the color changing patterns vary. Bill speaks with Western Carolina University’s Biology Professor, Dr. Beverly Collins, on today’s show to discuss when the ‘peak’ of leaf season will be, as well as why this natural occurrence happens.
