Bird & Nature Outing | Cherokee Marsh | February 7
Winter Ecology and Wetlands with Native Plant Expert Jeff Steele ~ 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.
Wetlands are fascinating relationships between water, plants and animals. What's going on beneath the surface? How do aquatic insects, amphibians and other animals survive winter in the marsh? Celebrate World Wetland Day with a beautiful winter walk at Cherokee Marsh and explore the wetland trails for yourself! Bring binoculars or a camera if you have one.
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.
