Fall foliage: leaves changing colors in the Coulee Region

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — If you have any plans on hosting that perfect fall wedding or photoshoot soon, you may be in luck.

Fall colors are beginning to come back to the Coulee Region.

With cool, crisp evenings in store, this year’s fall leaves are expected to be of normal shape and color.

According to UW-La Crosse scientists, the region is in for beautiful fall foliage.

“I think this year we’ll have a really good showing,” said Assistant Professor of Biology, Adam Schneider. “Lots of reds, oranges, and the maples and the sumacs. I’ve seen a lot of those on my bike ride to work.”

Leaves are predicted to peak in color by the second week in October.
