Bird & Nature Outings

Turville Point Bird & Nature Outing with Chuck Henrikson

Discover nature by foot, paddle or pedal! Thanks to our nature expert volunteers, Madison Parks offers free, family-friendly Bird & Nature Outings at various park locations throughout the year. No registration is required. Participants are asked to wear appropriate clothing for the day, be prepared for mosquitoes when in-season, and wear footwear for the weather when hiking. Dogs are not permitted. Binoculars, cameras and children are welcome.

Thanks to the Madison Friends of Urban Nature (FUN) for their dedication and enthusiasm. Join the FUN! Contact Paul Noeldner, (608) 698-0104, with questions or to volunteer.
