Want to See the Best Fall Foliage? There’s an App for That!

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri’s Conservation Department expects trees to be especially colorful this fall, and the agency is making it easy for leaf-peepers to find good place to behold the foliage.

The department has activated its “MO Fall Color” app for smartphones and other mobile devices and will keep it active through November. The app provides weekly fall color reports from places around Missouri, with GPS navigation information.

Users can also add their own fall color photos through the app, which is available for download on the Department of Conservation website.

The department’s forestry program manager says this year’s wet spring and cool summer produced healthy trees with plentiful leaves. The final element needed for vibrant colors is a fall with sunny days and cool nights but no frost or high winds.
