Join Southern Wisconsin Bird Alliance for this mostly sitting tour of Goose Pond Sanctuary’s restored mesic prairies. Participants will have a touring wagon pulled by a truck travel along our trails, with frequent stops to allow folks to get out and explore.

The focus will be on burned prairies which are much more colorful and full of blooms than unburned prairies due to an increase in vigor. Blooms span the color spectrum from the vibrant orange of butterfly milkweed to the bright purple spikes of blazing stars. Participants will discuss wildlife that uses the property, volunteer activities, restoration tactics, and future projects.

Feel welcome to bring a lunch to eat together at Goose Pond after the outing!
