Bird & Nature Outing - Cherokee Marsh Conservation Park, December 1
Adapting to Winter with Lynn Persson ~ Join Master Naturalist Lynn Persson to explore Cherokee Marsh, Madison's largest Conservation Park and learn fun facts about how plants, wildlife and humans have evolved and learned to adapt to winter. Along the way you will enjoy watching for examples of winter adaptations in the woodlands, prairies, birds and creatures you see. Winter outings may include a campfire and hot chocolate - two great ways humans adapt to winter!
Cherokee Marsh is Madison’s largest conservation park with three units - North, South and Mendota. Each month, year-round we explore the north unit's beautiful trails through the woodlands, wetlands and restored prairies along the Yahara ‘Catfish’ River. Co-sponsored by Madison Parks, Friends of Cherokee Marsh and Madison Audubon Society. Follow North Sherman Ave. to the parking lot at the end of the gravel entrance road. Free, family-friendly guided nature walks at Cherokee Marsh Conservation Park – North are held on the 1st Sunday of each month, year-round 1:30-3pm. No registration required. No pets are allowed.
