Still green: After a spell of below-average temperatures, spring may finally be emerging from hibernation. The Christmas Ferns, mosses and American Hollies gave us a glimmer of green throughout the barren season. As the snow fades into memory, they will soon be joined by the new growth of our other forest plants.
Beaver lodge: The beaver ponds are full once again. They had dwindled to mere puddles when the smaller streams went dry.
Canada goose: It looks like a pair of Canada geese have selected this pond as a potential nesting site.
Thoughts on the park, its residents and how to preserve its natural beauty.
