“There's a lot of vertebrates micro vertebrates that you can find under the rocks, lots of frogs amphibians hanging out over there,” continues Prudencio.

Visitors will get to experience new life in the water and on land, with more plants, birds, and insects coming out to make an appearance.

Mario does caution visitors of two organisms that also come out this time of year, ticks and rattlesnakes. Mario says other than that, many other harmless reptiles are waiting to greet you.

“You can see them scurrying on the edge of the trails the snake's tails are kinda whipping away as they hide from us so just a lot of changes, springtime is a good time for a change so we’ll see a lot of those changes happening” says Prudencio.
