Signs of Spring 2017

IJC boards from coast-to-coast have been watching the seasons change, starting with spring on March 20. Summer will be here on June 21.

We asked board members to submit photos of what they’re seeing on the landscape. Here are a handful of the signs of spring submitted so far. See our Instagram page for these and other photos.

We’re also collecting signs of spring from our readers. Feel free to send yours to SendPhotosIJC@gmail.com. Please include a caption and credit information. We may use the photos on social media or in reports (with credit, of course).
