Vernal Equinox Walk: Searching for Spring

The vernal equinox marks the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere, when the sun is directly above the equator and daylight hours are equal to nighttime. Join us on the first day of spring for a nature walk to search for signs of awakening life in the Mundy Wildflower Garden. Please dress appropriately for the weather. The walk will include some stairs, and trails may be muddy in places. Pre-registration is not required.

Fee:         $5-10 suggested donation

Location:    Meet at the Nevin Welcome Center
