Animal Adaptations ~ Explore beautiful trails at Turville Point on Lake Monona on a free naturalist guided walk with Stephanie Brand and Kaitlin Knudson!  What are 3 ways animals survive cold winters?  Some migrate to warmer climates, while others hibernate to conserve energy.  Others have special adaptations to stay active while resisting cold temperatures and food scarcity.  Let's talk about Wisconsin wildlife and their adaptations for winter!

Follow rolling hiking paths through the Turville Point Conservation Park 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, Badgerland Bird Alliance, 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 is required. No pets are allowed.
