There are changes to the Wings of Spring event this year.  One major change is that it is not just a single-day event anymore.  The event now runs the better part of a month, having kicked off on Saturday, according to Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau President Brett Stawar.

Stawar comments

In previous years, the Wings of Spring would be a one-day event, usually in May, that featured nature walks, bird presentations, canoe trips, and geocaching.  This year, it is a series of walks every Saturday and Sunday through the second weekend in May weather permitting.  For more information, or to RSVP, call 636-899-0090.
