Document Spring is an annual art and citizen science initiative that brings together individuals, organizations, high school and college students to capture the emergence of spring with artistic and scientific observations.

The project is guided by expert phenologists and photographers, whose skills help participants create snapshots of spring’s arrival throughout the St. Louis River Watershed, Jay Cooke State Park and other locations that reveal Carlton County’s unique and dramatic geography.

Document Spring 2020 begins Saturday, April 2 and continues through Sunday, May 31. Participants join nature expeditions led by Document Spring guides or venture out on their own, capturing images and observing nature’s seasonal change.
