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. Meet at the Eagle Heights Community Gardens tool shed, 3016 Lake Mendota Drive just up the hill from University Bay Drive. (Nov. 12)

 

Did you know...?

mourning cloak butterfly

Did you know that some butterflies overwinter as adults? Mourning cloak butterflies spend the winter frozen in cryo-preservation in tree cavities, beneath loose tree bark or anywhere they can fit and be protected from winter winds and predators. After emerging from winter hibernation males will perch in a sunny spot and wait for a female to flutter by. After a brief courtship the pair will mate. Read more about spring phenology.
