Set amidst 25 acres of woods and meadows on Farley Center land, the Natural Path Sanctuary is the first cemetery in Dane County, Wisconsin that exclusively follows natural and green burial practices. The nature preserve encompasses a diverse variety of habitats, including a pond and rocky ridges. 

Explore the sanctuary on an early spring morning, looking and listening for birdlife. The group will also be joined by staff who can share more about the history and management of this meditative place.

As a reminder, spring weather in Wisconsin can be inconsistent, so be sure to bundle up with layers and wear appropriate shoes for possibly icy, muddy, or wet conditions. Feel free to also bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, binoculars, and/or field guide. The field trip leader will share a checklist of all identified birds after the event.


  • This is an inclusive, accessible field trip and beginning birders are welcome
  • Additional details about trail conditions coming soon!
