This field trip is designed for folks new to birding, and is family-friendly!

Explore the wonderful Cherokee Marsh North Unit, enjoying the sights and sounds of winter. The group will share bird IDs and talk about how to tell that bird species apart from others. This is a low-key, slow paced, no-pressure outing for beginners.

Meet at the Cherokee Marsh North lot and trailhead at the end of N Sherman Ave (43°10’01.8″N 89°21’52.1″W). This incredible spot has a variety of habitats and trails, so the group will decide together which to explore! Together, look and listen for birds, focusing on tips for identification.

Feel free to bring a camera, binoculars, and/or field guide if you wish. Binoculars are not required, though there will be some available to borrow, if you’d like.

APPROXIMATE DISTANCE: 0-1 miles

RSVP REQUIRED? Participation is capped at 15 people. Register here.
