The Blue Jays are building nests:


The characteristic end buds of the Northern Wild Raisins are sprouting:


Early Saxifrage are peaking …

This evening photo shows this year’s lack of water in a pond along the Forest Access Road.   The fire hazard is “high” so everyone is on alert!


Today Mary Holland shows eggs in a Wild Turkey’s nest.
