Finally we’ve passed the gray months of winter and are headed into the season of color. Consider amping up your outdoor experience this year by taking a local naturalist course. Whether you’re interested in wildlife, native plants or local birds, there are springtime courses for telling the difference between mule’s ear (wyethia amplexicaulis) and the ears mules.
