Beginning Birding for Families July 27

Enjoy a family-friendly guided bird outing at Cherokee Marsh - South Unit on July 27, 9-10:30am led by members of the Feminist Bird Club - Madison Chapter. Learn about nesting behavior of local birds and how they raise their families in the summer as we wander the beautiful trails at the marsh. No birding experience required and binoculars for youth and adults will be available. All ages welcome, children and families encouraged. 

  • Location: Cherokee Marsh - South Unit from 9-10:30am
  • Accessibility Information: This outing will take place on wide trails that are primarily mowed grass. The terrain is primarily flat with a few gentle inclines, and would be suitable for strollers that can manage grass. There are no restrooms at this location.
  • Directions and Parking: We will meet in the first parking lot at the intersection of School Rd and Wheeler Rd. It is a small lot that can accommodate 5-6 cars, but there is also ample street parking directly adjacent to the park. 

Registration is required; space is limited for this event. Register online, or call your local Madison Public Library location for assistance. Registration opens Saturday, July 13.
