Join Natural Heritage Land Trust for a bird walk on International Migratory Bird Day. 

Saturday, May 13, 2017
Morning: 8:00 am - 10:30 am 

Where: UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve, Parking Lot 130 by the Class of 1918 Marsh
University Bay Dr., Madison, WI 53705 MAP

Who: FREE and open to land trust supporters. You must register so we know how many to expect

What: Join Roma Lenehan and Caleb Pourchot on International Migratory Bird Day for a moderate morning walk along the Lake Mendota shoreline. Hear the story of how 34 years ago a small group of citizens saved the 3.4-acres of Wally Bauman Woods on the bluffs of Lake Mendota. Birds we hope to see during the spring migration include many different species of warblers and other neotropical migrants. Please wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes and bring binoculars, water and insect repellent. 

What to bring/wear:  Dress for the weather. We recommend layers and sturdy shoes or hiking boots, water, binoculars, and insect repellent. There will not be restrooms at our meeting location but there are some available by Picnic Point Marsh. We will have a few pairs of binoculars if you do not have your own, courtesy Madison Audubon. The weather looks great for Saturday morning.
