Spring Events 2019

While this morning's snow wasn't very promising, there have been  signs that Spring is coming.  Blackbirds, Great Blue Herons, and Turkey Vultures have returned.  Turtles have been sunning.  Crocus have been in full flower and the daffodils are starting to blossom.  Kalamazoo's Spring is a great time for hiking, biking, or bird watching.  Warmer temperatures will also bring wildflowers and morels.

Many West Michigan festivals and activities celebrate Spring.
