Spring on the Mountain ...
Is in full force! Spring migratory birds are passing through or have arrived for the summer breeding season, wildflowers are blooming and the trees are finally leafing out on the mountain top! Here is a peak of what you can see out and about currently!
Many of these photos were from the most recent "What's In Bloom" program at the Mountain Lake Biological Station - held every Saturday at 10 am! More info. here.
This is just a taste of what we saw, you'll have to join us for an MLC Naturalist Program or the MLBS What's In Bloom program to see it all!
