Happy Vernal Equinox! Today marks the first day of spring, when day and night are of equal length… how will you celebrate the day?

This morning, I enjoyed a stroll through Huntley Meadows Park.  As I meandered through the park, I enjoyed the cacophony of birds in song and celebration. From Canada Geese to wood peckers, their voices echoed throughout the woods. I witnessed frogs and turtles during morning meditation; the muskrats engaged in sibling like squabbles; and birds a flutter, moving from perch to perch.

The first day of spring is a great time to start a new seasonal ritual and enrich your connection with nature. Here are few ideas to consider:

  • Go for a hike
  • Map your garden (using native plants, of course!)
  • Set up a bird bath and/or feeder
  • Tune your bike
  • Fly a kite
  • Eat lunch and/or dinner outside
  • Visit a zoo, the National Zoo if your in the DC metro area
Whatever you do, bring family and friends along!

How will you celebrate?
