Who's ready for spring!? We can't wait for warm, sunny days, dogwood and redbud trees in bloom and more time spent outside...and Spring Break, of course!  It's the perfect season for some hiking - there's nothing like watching nature awaken from its winter sleep. Make sure you're prepared to hit the trails with your mud boots - spring can be messy out in the forest (or opt for less messy paved trails). Get out and enjoy everything that early springtime in Morgan County has to offer. To help get you started here's a handy list of upcoming events in March, but check back as we'll be adding new events to our calendar throughout the month.
