Fall Has Arrived in Jackson County

Driving home from work last week, I looked up and saw that the tops of the trees in my neighbor are starting to turn… instead of green, I was greeted by reds, yellows, and oranges.

The changing colors and cooler temperatures have me just a bit giddy – fall is my favorite season!

Here in Jackson County, there are so many great ways to get out and enjoy fall:

  • nature hikes at Dahlem, MacCready, or Ella Sharp
  • bike rides along the Falling Waters Trail or at Waterloo Recreational Area
  • trips to our favorite apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and local farms
  • enjoying yummy fall treats from our favorite bakeries, candy shops, and restaurants

We are so excited about the many ways to Join In Jackson this fall, and we can’t wait to help one of YOU enjoy fall just a little bit more with the Fall in Jackson Michigan Giveaway!

Valued at over $270, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite fall activities and bundled them with local small businesses – and we can’t wait to see who wins!

See Good + Do Good

That’s our challenge to ourselves and to Jackson County. Here is an example of doing good we’ve seen recently…

  • JATA is launching a Rides to Wellness service to help Jackson County residents without transportation be able to access medical care.

  • The Jackson YMCA is offering water safety and swim lessons – helping to keep our kids safe in and around water.

Hearing about our neighbors showing up for each other in Jackson County makes our hearts happy. Way to “Join In Jackson” and be a part of this amazing community we call home!
