Event Description: 

It’s exhilarating to hear the first returning migrant birds in our area, to see the first fiddleheads unfurling, and the first ephemeral wildflowers blooming. Come out to Goodwin to discover the “firsts” of the season. We’ll be looking for fresh wildflower blooms, bud break in various trees, and bird arrivals.

Carrie Crompton is a Master Naturalist and a volunteer at the Goodwin Conservation Center.
