Every Season Outdoors

  • Spring

    As trees start to grow in spring, their sap rises. If you hold a stethoscope to the trunk you can actually hear it gurgling!

  • Autumn

    It is believed the word “autumn” came from the Etruscan (an ancient Italian civilization) word “autu”, meaning change of season.

  • Summer

    Most animals are active in the summer, rearing young. Squirrels begin to gather and hide nuts in late summer for the winter.

  • Winter

    The word ‘winter’ comes from the German word ‘winter’ which is derived from wed meaning ‘wet’ or ‘water’.
