  • It's World Turtle Day! Wood turtles like a damp, wet habitat where there are rocks for nesting, and gravel or sand to help there feet. This one was found at one of our conservation areas! 📷 : David Edwards

  • The weather is warming up and babies of all sorts are starting to pop out into the world to say hello! We want to kindly remind our community that if you see a wobbly fawn, a newborn bird or a tiny rabbit, enjoy the encounter from a safe distance but please leave the animal be. Its parent is likely nearby feeding and will be back soon to tend to their bundle of joy, but in the meantime these little ones are out getting to know this new, crazy world!

  • Spot it Sunday! Can you spot the little Yellow Warbler hiding in the branches? Did you know Yellow Warbler's love brushes, swamp edges and streams! During spring both male and female feed their young until they leave the nest just 9-12 days after hatching! But before then you'll often see the male warbler defending it's nesting territory by singing and fluttering around. .

  • A quiet walk is just what the doctor ordered after a long week. This Great Blue Heron is strolling at the waters edge at sunset. Do you think he's looking for an evening snack? 🌾 .
