Signs of spring blog six and seven

Blogs six and seven

Bill Hamilton, assistant professor of biology, and Deborah Sillman, instructor in biology, are a team at Penn State New Kensington who oversee the maintenance of the campus Nature Trail that was constructed in 1985. Each spring, the biologists write a blog about the birds, insects, mammals and flowers that herald the arrival of spring.

On their blog site, "Ecologist's Notebook: Reflections on the Natural World of Western Pennsylvania," they report on their observations around their Apollo house and on local nature trails, as well as the campus trail. The sixth blog, “Way Early Wildflowers” was written by Sillman on March 24. The seventh blog, "March-Summer," was written March 31 by Hamilton. More will follow in the coming weeks.
