It’s Spring Time!

Spring brings opportunities for a fresh start, and it’s a great time to start learning about the plants and animals around you.  Birding during the spring migration is amazing, especially if you go with a group (https://www.maineaudubon.org/birding/).  More experienced birders can point out new species to you and maybe talk a bit about how they identified those species (song, size, color, habitat, flight pattern, etc.).

Spring is a lovely time to learn forest plants, like bunchberry, wintergreen, rattlesnake plantain, and princess pine.  You can even learn which native Maine plants could work in your garden (https://wildseedproject.net/category/native-plant-blog/).  If possible, get kids involved in your exploration, curiosity and outdoor time is great for everyone!
