Bird & Nature Outing - UW's Lakeshore Nature Preserve, July 28
Monitoring a Bluebird Trail with Jeff Koziol ~ Jeff Koziol is the primary Bluebird Trail monitor at the UW Lakeshore Preserve. Join Jeff at Picnic Point for an easy walk to the Biocore Prairie to look at the Bluebird Trail. Jeff will help you learn about Bluebirds, nest boxes, and weekly monitoring and may let you take a peek inside a box. Can you tell if a nest was made by a Bluebird, a Tree Swallow, a Black-capped Chickadee, or House Wren? Why do trail monitors kick out House Sparrows? Learn about putting up your own box or trail. Free, family-friendly, no pets, no registration required. Wear comfortable hiking shoes and clothing appropriate for the weather. Bring binoculars or a camera if you have one!
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.
