Nature In The City: Falling Into Autumn

Oct 2, 2012

You might've noticed a few tell tale signs of Autumn: the beginnings of fall foliage in the trees, flocks of birds migrating overhead... But one has to wonder, how did all that dry heat this summer affect our natural world as we fall into the Fall season? And how is the lingering drought impacting local wildlife?

On this Wednesday's Central Standard, we take an early Autumn look at Nature in the City with Larry Rizzo, natural history biologist, and Joe Werner, biologist and urban ecologist.

Kansas City, what changes are you seeing as get into the autumn season? Seen any unique birds migrating, or other critters hanging around? Leave us a comment below, or send an e-mail to
