Anyday: Take a walk on the beach and enjoy the sunset! Or, take a walk in the forest and enjoy the pops of green & color coming out of the forest floor! Look for ramps, trillium, migrating birds, and maybe some Cicadas in late April (note: unlike Illinois, we should not be impacted by both emerging broods). You can even read a book while walking one of Chikaming Open Lands Preserves with their Story Walk installation. More details are here!
