With the first flowers appearing, the chorus of returning birds, and the last of the winter snowpack melting away, there is no doubt that spring has arrived -- and with it, SLT’s 2020 Summer Naturalist.

In the coming weeks, we will be increasing our social media presence through regular posts here on the Naturalist Journal, and additional activity on our Instagram and Facebook pages. Please follow along and share your own natural history observations as we come together, while apart, in celebration of spring!
