Spring is almost here!

Winter is now making way for spring, but it will still be some time before we can enjoy green grass and unfolding leaves. Meanwhile, the brighter weather and the longer days invite us out to explore. Look out for new signs of spring each day – maybe you can spot migratory birds returning or insects waking up?

Take care when driving on thawing gravel roads as your car may sink deep into the wet gravel and get stuck. Urban areas may already be dry and clear of snow, but forest trails can still be slippery with a thick layer of slowly melting ice.

Here are some lovely places to explore as you wait for the buds to burst open!
