Upcoming Autumn Fest celebrates change of seasons at Lake Tahoe

Tahoe gardening enthusiasts can welcome the arrival of fall at this year’s Autumn Fest.

The event will be on Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe Community College Demonstration Garden.

Visitors can learn how to attract birds into their gardens, maintain native shrubs and use medicinal plants. There will also be opportunities to dance to bluegrass music, or take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the campus.

The Kids Carnival will offer bobbing for apples, assembling pinecone bird feeders and a puppet show.

Local artisans will be selling crafts, and Blue Angel Cafe will serve lunch.

A guided tour through the garden will highlight plants that thrive in Tahoe.

Bring the whole family to celebrate the colors of Tahoe in the garden at this year’s Autumn Fest.

For more information or to volunteer, call Nicole at (530) 543-1501, ext. 111.
