SPRING IN WISCONSIN®

In spring, the birds are migrating, fish are biting and we’re ready to break out from the cold to appreciate the new life emerging from the melting snow. All that’s needed to enjoy springtime in Wisconsin is a light jacket and appreciation for the outdoors.

When we think spring in Wisconsin, we think of festivals and outdoor concerts, bubbling brooks and, of course, the blooming greenery that can be found at every turn. Bikers, hikers and anglers alike rejoice as the trails clear and water warms. Bird watchers and gardeners once again pick up their hobbies that bring such tranquility. And everyone is sure to take a moment to breathe in the fresh air.
