"With the slow and steady transition from January into February, our mornings in the forest have been gradually brightening and becoming strong with the promise of new growth!
It has been incredibly heartwarming to witness everyone's comfort levels shift with each other and nature to be at ease enough to lay back and watch how the clouds are moving together, take a moment to enjoy how the sun makes us feel in the winter, and jam along to the incredible songs Fireweed has introduced.
With this month focusing on tracking and animal signs, I've really enjoyed seeing the palpable excitement of digging into field guides to find answers to our questions and making more questions from what we notice and observe. After becoming familiar with hunting through the guides for our past birdwatching focus, they're now applying that skill to compare and contrast print shapes with other information and click their own puzzle pieces into place. I can't wait to see how these little buds bloom this spring!"
