  • Woodcocks are doing their courtship displays. Listen for their loud peenting or beeping at dusk on warm evenings.
  • Grizzlies come out of hibernation in mid to late March.
  • Look for fairy shrimp and other aquatic life in vernal pools. Take water samples to view under a microscope or magnifying glass.
  • In the Midwest, various species of grouse are displaying on their leks in the early mornings.
  • Wildflowers are blooming in the deserts of the western United States.
  • Snow trilliums bloom from late March to early April.
  • It’s time to make maple syrup! Maple sap runs best when daytime temperatures are above freezing and nighttime temperatures are below freezing.
