Congratulations! Over the past few months, we have survived the “blizzard” of 2011, freezing temperatures and many days off of school. But there is hope in sight — the first day of spring is a little over a month away (March 20 at 7:21 p.m. EDT to be exact.) Welcome the sunshine and the mild weather with an outing at the Shaw Nature Reserve. During the month of March, they are hosting several events to get you ready for spring.
