Early Spring Wildlife at Sweet Marsh

During a time when many activities are restricted, time in the outdoors is still permitted – social distancing required! In fact, time spent outdoors is healthy and good for you physically and emotionally.     

I went to Sweet Marsh three times today, beginning early this morning when there was still ice to paddle through. This video captures some glimpses of my outings:
