Winter Wander with Paul Noeldner ~ We will take a walk on easy paths through the woods and prairie to beautiful views of Lake Monona where Bald Eagles, Great Horned Owls, and Red-tailed Hawks often roost along the bay. Did you know that Raptors pair up and start making nests in midwinter?  With no leaves on the trees it is easier to see birds and nests but they are still hard to spot!  Stay after for hot chocolate and a campfire.

Follow rolling hiking paths through the Turville Point woodlands and prairie with beautiful vistas of Lake Monona and Monona Bay. Walks at Turville Point held on the 2nd Sunday every month are co-sponsored by Madison Bird City FUN partners, Madison Parks, Friends of Olin Turville and Madison Audubon Society. Meet at the Turville Point parking lot, entrance at the E. Olin Ave. stoplight from John Nolen Drive at the railroad tracks, south of Olin Park (not at the boat launch). No registration required. No pets are allowed.
