Augusta, Maine (NEWS CENTER)--The fall foliage season is beginning in Maine and the state is offering a number of events to encourage people to get outside and enjoy the season.
Old woodsmen say the color "moves ten miles a day" and the state is following this pattern with events that move north to south over the three week period.
This Buereau of Public Lands and the Maine Forest Service are coordinating the events which include eight paddles and one hike.
"It's a great time of year to encourage people to get out and experience the beauty of the changing seasons in Maine," said Gary Best in a statement. He is the assistant regional manager with the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.
