  • Because sap rises in March, marking the time of tapping maple trees, this full moon is called the Sap Moon.
  • Some tribes called this moon the Crow Moon because the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter.
  • Also known as the Seed Moon as it was now time for sowing.
  • Also called the Crust Moon because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night.
  • To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full moon of winter.
  • As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to soften, earthworms appear, heralding the return of the robins.
