Track Seasonal Changes

At Journey North, we follow several specific migratory species, like monarch butterflies and common loons, and phenological events, like emerging tulip bulbs. However, we recognize that there are other phenological events important to our Journey North community. Each of us may have our own sign of spring. What is your favorite sign of spring? Is it the first calls of frogs? Newly emerged crocuses? First blooms of lilac bushes?

Please report your sign of spring to Journey North using the reporting category, All Other Signs of Spring.  

If you tap maple syrup, report your first tapping dates using the reporting category, Maple Syrup (FIRST Sap Run).  

Enjoy all these signs for spring on our All Other Signs of Spring map and Maple Syrup (FIRST Sap Run) map
