The mission of Earthplace is to build a passion in our community for nature and the environment through education, experience and action.

At Earthplace: As days grown longer and snow storms turn to rain showers signs of spring begin to emerge all around us in the natural world. Walking along the quiet Swamp Loop trail a chorus of spring peepers call, wood frogs “quack” from the woodland vernal pools, skunk cabbage breaks through the winter hardened ground joining lovely yellow witch hazel blooms as early harbingers of warmer weather. Cardinals can be seen all around the property preparing for the mating season. It is time to go outside, discover what signs of spring renew your spirit and explore the Earthplace sanctuary in spring.
