Spring Already? Trails are Open!

Spring is here, with crocuses, periwinkles and daffodils emerging. Take a walk in the woods near any wetland can you can easily spot a skunk cabbage spathe popping up. Maybe you’ll see a marsh marigold in a shallow stream, even under water if it rained recently. Of course, wildlife is waking up, too. The trails are not crowded and social distancing is easy. Views are great because the leaves aren’t out yet. And while it’s still cool, you won’t find many mosquitoes or ticks.
