The Changing Seasons on the Rouge River

March 2, 2023

March is here. A few bird species that migrated south for the winter are already returning to Eliza Howell Park, and some perennial plants are showing signs of new growth

These early signs of seasonal change call to mind the full annual cycle.

Below are photos taken from the same spot over twelve months, each taken while standing on the footbridge over the Rouge River and looking upstream.

This is my 19th year of studying nature in Eliza Howell Park. These photos of the annual cycle remind me of the many rich experiences that I can expect between now and next March.
