Bird & Nature Outing | Edna Taylor | February 27
Maple Syrup Rising with Alex Singer ~ IMPORTANT: Following guidance from Public Health Madison & Dane County, Madison Parks is supporting the volunteer-led Bird & Nature Outings. Participation is limited to the first 20 people. Masks are required and must be worn at all times. Please practice social distancing with members outside of your household. Self-guided walks are encouraged any day.
Days are getting warmer but nights are still cold. Lengthening winter days are a perfect time for trees to start sending sap (energy stored as sugar) back up from their roots (the tree's storage batteries) to be ready to grow new leaves (the tree's solar panels). How does this magic occur every year? Take a walk to look for signs of tree sap rising such as buds forming on the ends of branches.
Join a naturalist for an easy family-friendly walk from Aldo Leopold Nature Center into beautiful Edna Taylor Conservation Park and enjoy a bit of nature education along the way. Walks through the Edna Taylor Conservation Park are held on the 4th Saturday, 10-11:30am of each month and begin at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center, 330 Femrite Drive. Co-sponsored by Madison Parks, Madison Audubon Society, and Aldo Leopold Nature Center. No registration required. No pets are allowed.
