Events & Classes: Walks
Night Walk: The Snow Moon
Saturday, January 31 • 6:30 pm – 8 pm
Great horned owls are quiet in February, but barred owls may be calling. If the owls are silent, we will stargaze and listen for other creatures active on a late winter night.
Walk: Halfway to Spring
Sunday, February 1 • 1 pm – 2:30 pm
Days may be getting longer, but it doesn’t always seem like spring. We will look for natural activity near the Visitor Center.
Walk: Winter birds
Sunday, February 8 • 1 pm – 2:30 pm
Returning birds often arrive in February. We will look for red-winged blackbirds, bluebirds, robins, and more.
Family Walk: Animal Tracks
Sunday, February 8 • 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Animal tracks are easy to spot in the snow and mud. If neither are present, we will look for trails animals make through the vegetation.
Life in Winter
Sunday, February 15 • 1 pm – 2:30 pm
We will look for clues as to how animals survive winter in Wisconsin
Walk: The End of Winter
Sunday, February 22 • 1 pm – 2:30 pm
We can look for signs winter is ending, even if it is still cold—plants are budding, birds and mammals are preparing for spring.
