Come spend an afternoon at the Wagner learning about this special time of year when the leaves change colors and the crops are ready to be harvested. You’ll also be able to explore our museum where you can learn about the Harvest Moon and what animals do during the fall season.

- Learn about the leaves’ color changes through chromatography

The event runs from noon to 4 and activities will be happening in our lecture hall and museum all afternoon, so come anytime!
