Launching our Suburban Soles* program in 2022 is our favorite spring activity, MIGRATORY BIRD WALK. Limited to one walk this spring, join us on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8th from 8:30 – 10:30am. We will meet at the tennis court parking lot. For safety, please consider wearing a mask.

Binoculars and comfy shoes/boots suggested.  A pocket guide or phone App such as Sibley’s, National Geographic or I-Bird are helpful ID tools.  We expect the species counts to continue to increase over two to three weeks, as migrants from South and Central America are beginning their big push through to breeding grounds here and in the Canadian boreal forest.

Those of you wishing to bring more bird life to your yards may wish to visit Wisconsin Audubon’s website:

After typing in your zip code, you will be given a list of native plants known to be beneficial to birds in your area.

Questions may be addressed to betsyacorn@gmail.com.

*Suburban Soles complete schedule will be viewable elsewhere on this site on April 1st

    Betsy,
    Way to go continuing all the Bird watching quests in that beautiful park.
    So enjoyed the Mothers day walk in 2014.
    Thank you for getting people out in the park to enjoy the beauty in Nature.

    All the Best!
    Kim Hall
