Pausing en Route

"I have a room all to myself; it is nature." (Henry David Thoreau, author and naturalist)

  1. Stop for a few minutes in a spot that intrigues you.
  2. Use all your senses to observe the phenomena happening in the woods. Are the trees in bloom? Can you hear the frogs croaking? Can you smell the decomposing soil?
  3. Imagine you are a bobcat. Crouch, lie down or bend over and look between your legs. Do you see anything you had missed before?

three things you noticed.

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit

Male wood frogs croak in early spring to attract females. They then fertilize the thousands of eggs that the females deposit in the water. In May, try to find these gelatinous masses (as pictured here) in small temporary ponds.

Play it safe!

Some plants and mushrooms may be toxic. If you're not sure, don't touch them.
