Fall Foliage Report

Share this

Our leaves are at approximately 10% change with green being the predominate color.  By the upcoming weekend, we expect to be at 20% change with red and yellow colors beginning to emerge.

We expect color to peak around Columbus Day Weekend, but if we have storms with strong winds, those leaves won't last long!

Check back for updates.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
