Magic of Winter with Andria Blattner ~ Join Naturalist Andria Blattner with Friends of Olin Turville on a free guided walk to discover the magic of nature in winter at Turville Point and learn about the plants and animals that call it home. We will follow the winding trails past old oaks to the hilltop restored prairie and majestic pines where Great Horned Owls nest in winter as snow falls around them. Enjoy beautiful views across Lake Monona to downtown Madison. Click here for a trail map and learn Fun Facts about plants and animals in winter.
