The Dahlem CenterThe Dahlem Center on South Jackson Road is a great place to take a walk in any season. This afternoon we decided to go there, enjoying milder temperature and sunshine. It's too early for many signs of spring; trees are just getting little buds for leaves and wildflowers aren't in bloom yet. I did see a very small snake, but it scurried away from me as quickly as it could. The Dahlem Center has trails leading through the woods, across prairie fields, and over walkways constructed on the wetlands. It feels far away from home, reminding me of walking in national parks. My son Tom loves to take photos here. How lucky we are to have this center conveniently available to us!
