Although leaves fall around your island to represnt fall during the Autumn months, you can only collect maple leaves from November 16 - November 26 in the Northern Hemisphere or from April 16 - April 25 if you're playing in the Southern Hemisphere.

Just like with how you collect Cherry Blossom petals in spring you need to use your bug net to collect a maple leaf. Thing is, only some leaves can be collected. To catch them, run around your island with your bug net in hand. When you see a larger maple leaf than normal flitting around, run up to it and catch it with your net quickly before it disappears.
