Maine is a wonderland in the wintertime, with all the snowy-day activities, from skiing to snowshoeing. And, of course, summertime is when Maine really shines. But what about the less-loved mud season? Our panelists suggest ways to enjoy springtime in Maine even when it's not at its most glorious, weatherwise. We'll get ideas for indoor and outdoor activities, destinations, events and more.

In coordination with the Nature/PBS series “American Spring LIVE” (airing April 29, 30 and May 1) and Maine Public's tie-in event at the Gisland Farm Audubon Center on April 27, our Maine Calling will highlight nature appreciation, phenology, science education and citizen science, and we’ll ask callers to share what signs of spring they look for in their part of the state and how they are getting involved with their natural surroundings.
