Suburban Soles program 2024

Suburban Soles returns for its 7th season, to explore and discover the secrets of our natural world. Join us for this free event, every other Sunday, from May through September as we discuss various  topics such as wildflower identification, water quality of Oak Creek, and urban wildlife . We will learn to identify migrating bird species, obtain skills to identify tree species and how we can integrate them successfully into our home landscapes, and track dragonflies and damselflies to do citizen science surveys, discovering their secrets and numbers.

Each week, we will focus on a new area of study that will be led by professional field guides associated with various green organizations from around Milwaukee county.

Once again, we wish to thank We Energies Foundation for their support of this program. These events are presented and supported by the Friends of Grant Park, and are completely free to attend, with a suggested donation to keep the programs alive. 

Below is the event schedule for dates, times and locations of each event. Locations and time vary, but all are in Grant Park on Sundays. Events are held rain or shine. Please dress accordingly including proper footwear. We advise leaving your 4 legged friend at home. Events are for all ages. And most importantly, we Bee-leave you will have a tree-mendous time, hope to see you there!
