ST. PAUL — The leaves are just beginning to change color in Minnesota.
The Department of Natural Resources posted its first online fall color report of the season, showing the most advanced color changes, at 10 to 25 percent of peak color, over swaths of northeast, north-central, east-central and south-central Minnesota.
The weekly reports show percentage of color change, peak color projections, flowers and grasses in bloom. DNR forest health specialist Jana Albers said in a statement that the arrival of colors was “right on schedule.”
