Hunting Not Allowed in the Preserve Including the Waters of Lake Mendota
Waterfowl hunting occurs at various intervals in the Madison area from September 1 through December 6 (http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/hunt/waterfowl.html ). However, the discharge of firearms is not allowed in the Lakeshore Nature Preserve or in the waters of Lake Mendota within the municipal boundaries of the city of Madison. If you hear gunfire along the Preserve shores, call 911; note your location and where you are hearing gunfire.
Free Family Friendly Bird and Nature Walks--Every 4th Sunday!

These informal outings welcome students, families and kids. Walk leaders and participants share their knowledge about the birds, animals and plants they find as they stroll the Preserve paths.
