Event details

We’ll search for vernal indicators like wildflowers resprouting, tree buds unfurling, migrant birds returning, animals emerging from hibernation, choruses of frogs singing and tender green shoots peeking through last year’s dead leaves, plus learn why skunk cabbage got its name.

This program is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.
