  • 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? 🌾 .

  • Join CLC for our 🌸 Full Flower Moon Hike 🌕 , which actually has nothing to do with flowers. Full Moons began having names during Native American and Colonial times to help track the seasons. Depending on the community, May’s full Moon was called the Full Flower Moon as well as Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon. The May full Moon marked the time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom. .
.
.
What is also exciting is this moon is also a Blue Moon, meaning it is the second full moon of the month! The Full Flower Moon is also known to be May's brightest moon! Be sure to grab your hiking shoes because you won't want to miss these spectacular views happening tomorrow at dusk at the Greenport Conservation Area! For more information please visit our website and pre-register!
