* The Full Moon in March is called a Full Worm Moon in Native American lore because as the Earth begins to thaw and warm with the emerging longer days of sunlight, earthworms begin to surface and birds return to harvest them after a long Winter. In some Northern tribes, the March Full Moon was called the Crow Moon, as the crows would return from Southern lands. Is is also known as the Full Crust Moon for the crusting or icing of snowbanks or the Full Sap Moon, when Canadian tribes would tap the Maple trees for their sap. All in all, this is considered the last Full Moon of Winter.
