Around Crystal Spring in Past Years

From spring clearing to summer's bounty to a luminous Winter Solstice, see what's been happening at Crystal Spring.

We welcomed the songbirds and discovered what the worms had been up to. We helped to create habitat for seedlings and bluebirds.  See Spring Equinox photos. In February we learned the art of wildlife tracking with guides from White Pine Tracking in Cape Neddick, Maine. See photos of one tracking experience. For Biodiversity Day at Crystal Spring, we walked the woodland, observing and recording more than 100 plants, animals and habitats. See photos. The local Food Fest was a great success from guest speaker Didi Emmons to the annual salad toss. See Photos
