|Spring is in the Air!
Everywhere you look
there are signs of Spring. The colours are all there. Life is being reborn.
There is a renaissance (a rebirth) taking place at Salmonier.
At 4:45 p.m. on March 20, 1998 the season called Spring
officially began. With it came longer days, warm evenings and rain (let's not
forget the drizzle and fog).
Perhaps the best indicator that winter is over are the sights
and sounds of birds. Birds that migrated South for the winter are slowly but
surely returning. At the time of this article twelve (12) Canadian Geese have
returned to Salmonier. These large water fowl will spend the remainder of
Spring and the Summer nesting and raising their young goslings in the ponds
around the Salmonier Correctional Institution.
Besides geese there are ducks, jays, chickadees and robins all
returning to enjoy the security of the peaceful natural surroundings that are
here at Salmonier.
