Stew Crew September Update

Welcome to beautiful Autumn.  We are so fortunate to live in a state where we witness the beautiful Autumn colors.  Ever wonder what makes the leaves change color?

  • Yellow, orange and variations always reside in the pigmentation of tree leaves, but they are overpowered by the abundance of green from the chlorophyll in the leaves. Come Autumn, when the sun weakens and days grow shorter, the amount of chlorophyll in leaves diminishes, allowing the other pigments in the leaves to show through.   Red and purple leaves are actually caused by the presence of sugars from sap that is trapped inside of the leaves.

Attached is the September Volunteering Update. We had a mixture of projects throughout the month.  Thank you to all of the volunteers!
