Early fall has arrived in Ohio, and touches of autumn color are beginning to appear in wetlands and woodlands around the Buckeye State. Goldenrod and asters are taking center stage in fields and along roadsides over the next few weeks, and the annual parade of autumn color will reach its peak in late October and early November. Join us on October 17-18 at the Cleveland Botanical Garden for an intensive, weekend workshop in digital landscape and nature photography with Ohio photographer, writer and teacher Ian Adams.
