Spring - the transition from winter into summer.
Warm air begins to take over the chill of past months. Blossoms begin to burst. Birdsongs abound from the trees. Nature walks galore!!!
Springtime is the time of growth, renewal, and of new life. A time to, once again, invade the outdoors and soak up all the wonders of creation.
Our first nature walk this spring was at Montour Preserve. Aaron narrates:
On Friday we went to Montour Preserve. We went on the trail that we usually go on. We went down near the creek and found shells. We found a lot of them, and then we found hundreds and hundreds of deer tracks on the trail.
After that we went to the pond. At the pond we ran to our favorite island and found a dead frog that we thought was just hibernating. I poked it with a stick and it was not moving. Then it fell apart. We also saw some tadpoles.
My mom was moving a stick and I it thought it was turtles head. We went back around the other side of the pond and we saw a Canada goose. We also found a duck skull on the water’s edge. It still had some hair on it.
We stopped at the store on the way and got a snack.
