UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve Bird Walk 

Saturday, May 19, 2018
8:30 - 10:30 am 

Where: UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve, Parking Lot 130 by the Class of 1918 Marsh
University Bay Dr., Madison, WI 53705 MAP

Who: FREE and open to the public. Registration is required and space is limited.

What: Join us for a  morning walk at the Lakeshore Nature Preserve with birder Marty Evanson. Hear our origin story of how a group of citizens created a groundswell of community support and saved the 3.4-acre Wally Bauman Woods on the bluffs of Lake Mendota. Birds we hope to see during the spring migration include many different species of warblers and other neotropical migrants.

What to bring/wear:  Dress for the weather. We recommend layers and sturdy shoes or hiking boots, water, binoculars, and insect repellent. There are no restrooms at our meeting location but rustic toilets are available by the beach at the Picnic Point Narrows. We will have a few pairs of binoculars if you do not have your own, courtesy Madison Audubon.
