Welcome to Fall

Cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors of the season welcome us to fall! Our outdoor community is a treasure offering bountiful opportunities to hike and bike, peddle and paddle, and more than 10 special events to enjoy community and nature. Check out the complete list of special events and our outdoor adventures. Get outside for nature walks and talks, movie nights, gardening discussions, adventure programs and tours of our local, state and national parks. You can also get inside at our recreation centers for a wide variety of fitness and wellness programs as well as take advantage of the hundreds of classes, activities and events of all interest being offered this fall.
