“Our region has some of the most beautiful fall color in the country,” said Park Ranger Andy Brown. “From the Sierras to the Rubies, and along every winding creek in between, there are hidden gems waiting to be discovered. People take some amazing photographs during this time of year, and the Sierra-Nevada Autumn exhibit is meant to give them a chance to share those scenes with the public.”

Bartley Ranch Regional Park is managed by the Washoe County Community Services Department. For more information, visit www.washoecountyparks.com.
