According to the calendar, spring has barely begun. However, the observant outdoor nature detective has likely noticed evidence of the new season for weeks. By this time of year, early arriving species such as red-winged blackbirds and turkey vultures have returned to our area. Join us as we look for other harbingers of spring: skunk cabbage poking its leaves from beneath the snow or soil (and warming the surrounding ground); early spring insects; and perhaps even early frogs.
