A lot has changed here on Chewonki Neck in the past two weeks. The weather has gone from freezing to extremely warm and humid. This beautiful weather is not only increasing the time we spend outside, but now there is a a whole lot more animal and bird activity. For example, the frog pond is filled with frogs that you can hear throughout campus, day and night. There also has been an increasing number of birds here on Chewonki Neck; when you step outside you hear a constant chirping from birds like the house sparrows, black-capped chickadees, and American red robins. Also the trees here have been blooming and starting to show their leaves, which has been very exciting and beautiful.
Since the weather has gotten a whole lot nicer there has been a lot more activities outside; people have been going on daily walks to the point and for the last couple of weeks there have been groups of people camping out around the Neck. Also today for the first time this spring Paul Arthur is leading a small group of MCS students on a day canoe trip.
