In the Woods

The next few weeks I'll be working at the environmental education center.
Today I took a group of 6th graders on a hike.
While climbing a large boulder we noticed this turkey nest on a lower outcropping.
The outcropping of rock was about 3ft off the ground.

PA is still in the early stages of spring. These fiddle heads (baby ferns)
and May Apples are the first green foliage amongst last years fallen leaves.  
Some trees have small buds but most are still bare.
Slowly but surely the woods are turning green.
The woods will be changing daily as spring turns summer.
Go outside and see for yourself the wonder of nature.
Even if you don't live in an area where the seasons change, Mother Nature is still putting on a show right outside your front door. Go see it, it's free.
Have a great day and stop back soon!


  1. ahhhh, Spring time up north. Everyone hoping it comes early and all flora and fauna awaken and become active. Walks in the springtime woods watching it give birth to a new season's worth of life. And of course, trout season.

  2. What a find that turkey nest. We have some wild ones roaming about here. Lots of woods across the street so they can hide out pretty well. Fiddleheads unfurling, nice. xox
