Bird & Nature Outing - UW's Lakeshore Nature Preserve, February 24
Lakeshore Stories with Paul Noeldner ~ Learn about some of the history and research being done at the UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve with Master Naturalist and Friends board member Paul Noeldner. We will take a walk to the Biocore Prairie to learn about plant and bird research being done there, and share stories about the nearby engagement orchard, archeological pottery kiln, and bone pit. If time permits we will walk to historic Frautchi Point and return for a campfire at Fire Pit 2 near the Native American mounds on Picnic Point.
Join a naturalist for a family-friendly nature walk starting at Picnic Point to discover the UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve including historic woodlands, native mounds, restored Biocore Prairie and beautiful Lake Mendota shoreline. Walks at UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve the 4th Sunday every month are co-sponsored by Madison Bird City FUN partners Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve and Madison Audubon Society.
