Pleasant spring weather. Woods starting to come to life after warmer temps moving in. The first wildflowers and greenery sprouting from the forest floor. Leaves are the trees budding and slowly beginning the process to come full circle. More birds migrating in and fun to see scarlet tanagers in the forest Saturday. We have been clearing on the trails and also planting trees for spring trail work.
