Even though the official start of fall is about a month away, some trees and shrubs in St. Lawrence County are already beginning to change color as they enter dormancy early this year because of the hot, dry summer.

Have trees where you live begun to change colors?

Take the NCNow Survery

Results will be posted Monday, Aug. 29.


Wild parsnip, an invasive capable of causing severe burns and possibly even blindness has become abundant in St. Lawrence County, and little is being done to stop its spread. Look along the side of most St. Lawrence County roads and wild parsnip measures three to five feet in height and features yellow umbrella-like flowers that are similar in appearance to Queen Anne’s Lace. If skin comes into contact with parsnip sap and is then exposed to sunlight the result can be severe.

Have you seen wild parsnip where you live?
