Get Out!

  • Try the taste of spring. Redbuds start blooming in late March. Their blossoms add a pop of color and tangy flavor to salads.
  • Many Missouri turtles become active in late March. You can help turtles cross the road by carrying them in the direction they were headed — but only if it’s safe to do so.
  • Walk a trail to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of spring.
  • Songbirds are returning to Missouri. Keep them from flying into reflective windows by sticking easy-to-remove painter’s tape or decals to the outside of big panes.
  • The youth portion of Missouri’s 2021 spring turkey season is April 10 and 11.
