August was awesome, but Naturalist and author Larry Weber explains why September is wonderful. too.  Among many things to note: Bird migration is underway and next week will be a prime week to view raptors at Hawk Ridge.  It's also "turtle time," with baby snapping turtles emerging from their nests.  Leaves are starting to change and some late-season wildflowers are blooming too.
