We are starting to get a taste of spring as temperatures rise into the sixties on some days and fall back into the 20s on other days here New England. Despite the lower temperatures over the past couple of days, there are still some sure fire signs that spring is nearing! One of which being that the first official day of spring is in four days on March 20th, but there is all sorts of other animal and plant activity that is also starting to take place. Some of our early spring migratory birds are back and calling like the Woodcock and the Red Winged Blackbird, and there were even a number of garter snakes spotted out and about over the weekend!
Well, here are some fun ideas for March journaling from The Nature Connection by author/naturalist Clare Walker Leslie!
Possibly the best way to experience spring through our nature journals is to just get outside and start making observations! If they make it into your journal, wonderful, and if you are just outside to enjoy the day with no journaling, that is okay too!
