Spring is Here! 

For many recreationists, Spring means it’s time to say goodbye to many fine-feathered friends who spend only part of the year at the Island. For others, it means welcoming verdant fields, access to a larger trail system, and boating on the interior lakes. By the end of April many of the winter migratory birds will be gone, but by May 1st, roads and dikes that were off-limit since October are accessible once more. For me, both a “cranophile” and a kayaker — it’s a bittersweet time.
