OLDENBURG ARTS AND CULTURAL COMMUNITY

Document Spring 2019 is an art and citizen science ‘bioblitz’ 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, who help participants create images of spring’s arrival at the St. Louis River, Jay Cooke State Park and other unique and dramatic Carlton County locations.

Beginning April 13 and continuing through May 31, participants join safaris led by Document Spring guides or venture out on their own, capturing images and observing nature’s seasonal change.
