Spring Checklist
Help Track Spring's Journey North

Please print a copy of the checklist below and watch for these migrations and signs of spring. Remember: We can't track Spring without you! Even if you don't track all the migrations, please send as many sightings as you can. We need help from everyone in order to gather enough data.
