Bird & Nature Outing - Starkweather Creek Area
Canoe the Creek with the Friends of Starkweather Creek ~ Explore Starkweather Creek by canoe and kayak with Friends of Starkweather Creek board members and friends! We will paddle up this beautiful urban waterway that flows through the heart of Madison's east side. Learn about Friends board activities to help support clean water and the aquatic insects, rain gardens, beavers and other fascinating native plants, birds and wildlife along the creek. Some canoes and kayaks will be provided and led by an experienced paddler. Please bring your own paddle craft if you have one.
Outings in the Starkweather Creek area vary each month - be sure to check the starting location. All begin at 10:00am and frequently start at the Goodman Community Center, unless noted otherwise and are held the 3rd Saturday of every month, year-round. Outings include nature walks, canoe/kayak adventures, bicycling tours and more, and are sponsored by the Madison Friends of Urban Nature, Madison Parks, Goodman Community Center, Madison Audubon Society, and Friends of Starkweather Creek.
