Signs of Spring in the Belgrade Lakes

Though Winter isn’t relinquishing its hold without a fight, there are signs of Spring all throughout the Belgrade Lakes Region. The sunny mornings are full of bird songs, the mouths of streams are ever expanding, and migratory waterfowl are moving northward. Just yesterday, a turkey vulture was spotted soaring in the direction of Kennebec Highlands, where they often roost on the craggy face of French Mountain.

Just as the coming of Spring brings about great changes to the region, the MLRC is undergoing a seasonal transition as well. As the ice recedes, we move all the closer to our buzzing spring and summer seasons. This year promises to be one of the busiest seasons yet as we embark on the water quality initiative and prepare our most robust schedule of community events yet.

The staff of the Maine Lakes Resource Center wishes you all a happy first day of Spring!
