Wake up, nature! It's springtime! Time to come out of hibernation, time to blossom, time to grow.
Our Spotlight reminds us that many animal species respond to seasonal changes in a dramatic way. Human beings may need to change their wardrobes, but many animals have to change their habitats.
Make sure that you notice the rapid changes in nature that will happen this month. On April 1st, focus on a tree that you see everyday. Check it daily. By the end of the month, you'll probably see a very different tree.
Remember that we "spring forward" on April 7th. Daylight Savings Time begins throughout most of the United States. Also, plan to observe National Astronomy Day on April 20th.
And don't forget your umbrella!
