ACRES Land Trust

Are you looking for a fun outdoor activity to do with your kids? Check out the ACRES Land Trust website for a list of Nature Preserves in our area. Plan a trip to hike, birdwatch & look for signs of spring.

My family enjoyed a hike yesterday in the sunshine. We saw a pileated woodpecker, a cardinal, and several robins. We spotted a nest up high in a tree, but couldn't figure out who it belonged to. We noticed a lot of leaf buds on the trees. It isn't very green out there yet, but we plan to watch the season change.

Find a nature preserve near your home and check it out!

I highly recommend checking out the ACRES site! I explored one of their nature preserves yesterday -- and I also saw many birds, including a gorgeous bluebird, and other signs of spring!
