April 18 update - Three-Mile Drive is now open to motor vehicles and bicycles for the season! Snowdrops are blooming in the Hosta Glade! Look for crocus in the Home Demo Garden and behind the Snyder Building, pussywillows along the bog boardwalk, trilliums in the wildflower garden, scilla in the herb garden and dwarf iris in front of the Visitor Center. Red-winged blackbirds are chirping. The osprey have returned to their nests (see live osprey cam). Ahhh, it's officially spring, even with Mother Nature's funny weather blips!
NOTE: We're improving to serve you better! Reduce speed during gatehouse and entry construction through spring and summer of 2014.
