NATURAL LANDS . SPRING/SUMMER 2020 11 Springtime in nature arrived on cue again this year. Birds nested. Wildflowers bloomed. Trees unfurled. Streams rushed. During a time of human disruption, its resiliency provides us with inspiration, escape, and solace. That’s the power of nature. As spring turns to summer and the natural world continues to go about its business, so does Natural Lands—saving open space, caring for nature, and connecting people to the outdoors—thanks to our remarkable community of supporters.
