Fall In to Autumn
Birds begin their migration back to their southern overwintering grounds, after a summer spent mating, nesting, rearing young, and eating well. Before we see the V’s flying overhead, we often hear them honking and calling to each other.

Autumn means hibernation is coming. We’ve noticed a lessening of Arctic Ground Squirrel activity at Yukon Wildlife Preserve.
Summer is over, the cycle continues. Autumn is the clear signal to prepare for what’s ahead. Fall in to Autumn; experience the sights and sounds with enjoyment, wherever you are.
