The Long Rest is Over
At long last we see signs of Spring overpowering Winter. While we thoroughly enjoy the adventures that the cold season brings, the coming of Spring brings innate longings within us and our wild friends. We become restless, keeping a keen eye to the ever lengthening days, an ear cocked for the return of bird song and the nose waiting for that first scent of Striped Skunk on the air.
The arrival of Spring often brings to the human world anticipation and housekeeping, not so very different than many of our wild neighbors who are busy preparing to bring forth another generation.
As we enter into this busy time of year when new life "springs" forth, let us all do what we can to return a little of the wild back to those that not only share the planet with us but provide us with food, shelter and everything else we humans use to not only survive but to live a fairly opulent life. Consider creating wildlife habitat on your property or at a local park or with a community group. Be it a small corner of your yard or contributing to a local land conservancy, let us all remember that without the gifts of the Earth, we humans would fail to exist. Here are some links that you might find helpful. Happy Spring!
