It's October; the leaves are changing colour, squirrels are busy gathering food, birds are flying north, or winterizing their nests. There is a plethora of activity all around us. So many mysteries like; Why do the leaves change colour? How do the birds know when to fly north and where to go?
This is a perfect time for long nature walks to discover and observe all this activity, by playing detective and solving some of life's mysteries.
For instance did you know that Porcupines can climb trees?
