Spring Buds for You with Paul Noeldner ~ Join Master Naturalist Paul Noeldner as we walk near Tenney Park, starting from the beach shelter, 1330 Shernan Ave. for a free, family-friendly adventure! We'll look for buds ready to burst on bushes and trees, Cardinals and Redwings singing sweet songs to establish nesting territories and attract mates, migratory ducks on the water and other signs of Spring!  Did you know every cell in every new leaf is already formed tiny in the bud, just waiting for the right mix of sunny days to be pumped up with tree sap and spring into action? 

Nature-expert guided walks in Tenney Park along Lake Mendota and the Yahara River Parkway bike path through the Madison Isthmus are free, family-friendly and held the first Saturday of each month, from 2:30-4pm. The walk begins at the Tenney Beach parking lot, 1330 Sherman Avenue. No registration is required. No pets are allowed. Co-sponsored by Madison FUN Friends of Urban Nature, Madison Parks, Madison Audubon SocietyTenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association and Friends of the Yahara River Parkway.
