Your April photos revealed a landscape full of new life. Loons nested, wildflowers bloomed, and a baby porcupine did its best to ignore the presence of an animal tracking group. Vernal pools were full of amphibians – much to a barred owl’s delight – and a mourning cloak butterfly emerged from hibernation. Take that, buckthorn!  Students at Stafford Technical Center worked to enhance habitat at a nature reserve.

We’re now on the hunt for May 2016 photos. We encourage you to share images about anything that relates to the Northeast’s forests, and that you take this month. Here are examples – but by no means an exclusive list – of photo topics that fit this category: nature, weather, education activities (any age), forest management/logging, recreation, wood manufacture, art, workshops, events. As long as it relates in some way to the Northeast’s forests, we’ll consider it.
