50 Essential Outdoor Spring Activities

It's hard to believe that we are already mid-March - that awkward time when spring is just around the corner, but it still feels like winter. One day its sunny and you're finally able to dust off your spring jacket. And then the next, it is the complete opposite - grey, snowing and you can't leave home without your winter gear.

Despite what it may be doing outside, March 20 is the first official day of spring and my favourite season. Colourful flowers, baby animals and fresh air - what's not to love?
