Thousands Of Singing Spring Peepers Are A Welcome Sound Of Normalcy Here In Ohio
No matter what happens in the world or how our society evolves, nature runs its course. Here in the Buckeye State, springtime welcomes blooming flowers, jungle songbirds, vibrant butterflies, beautiful hummingbirds and a tiny but mighty amphibian—the Northern Spring Peeper. If you recognize its distinct song, it’s hard not to notice once they’ve arrived.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
