About Temperate Forests

 
* Temperate forests are found in cool, rainy areas and are comprised primarily of deciduous trees that shed their leaves in the fall and re-grow them in spring. Fall is often spectacular in the temperate forest as leaves turn nrown, orange, yellow, red, or purple before falling to the ground.
* Temperate forest regions have four seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. Temperatures during the summr can be 90 degrees Fahrenheit or higher while temperatures in winter can dip well below freezing.
* Depending on location, temperate forests receive between two and six feet of precipitation per year.
* Temperate forests feature high levels of biodiversity. Common animals include black bears, foxes, raccoons, skunks, snakes, woodpeckers, owls and many others.
