I can tell the temperature is dropping when the walks I take with my dog, Hank, get shorter and shorter. This year, I am vowing to spend more time enjoying the crisp air and changing leaves of Michigan, and less time anticipating the snow. Here are some activities around town for those of you (like me) who might need an excuse to put down your iPad, get off the couch, and head outside.

Some require registration and include a fee.

Fall Color Hike at Tenhave Woods in Royal Oak, Oct. 26th, 2 p.m.

Moonlight Wagon Rides at Stony Creek (near Shelby Twp.), Oct. 24th, 7:30 p.m.

Fall Bird Hike at Indian Springs (near White Lake), Oct. 25th, 8 a.m.

Evening Lantern Tours at Oakwoods (near Flat Rock), Oct. 25th, 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

Be Your Own Guide:

Cranbrook House & Gardens in Bloomfield Hills

Finlandia Gardens in Farmington Hills

Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor
