Calendar - Field trips and Volunteer days
Dec 7 Birding Madison Lakes (Sat, 7:30–11:00 a.m.). As the smaller ponds and lakes in south-central Wisconsin freeze, migrating birds become concentrated on Madison’s large lakes, which remain open longer. We will look for waterfowl, gulls, winter birds, and tundra swans! Dress warmly. Meet at the UW Parking Lot 60, 800 Walnut Street. From there, we’ll drive around Lakes Mendota and Monona. Leader: Quentin Yoerger (608-449-5261, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dec 8, Sunday, 9am-noon, Frautschi Point parking lot

The Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve inspires people to connect to and care for the Lakeshore Nature Preserve.
Stretching from the Eagle Heights Natural Area to Picnic Point and the Lakeshore Path, the Preserve is a jewel of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, distinguishing it as one of the most beautiful in the country. The Preserve is open to the public.
Please see our Mission and Goals and join us in caring for the Preserve. We invite you to explore the Preserve on this web site and in person, and attend Volunteer Days and free Field Trips.
