Events – Programs and Field Trips

Audubon offers programs, field trips, activities, and workshops related to the environment.

During the season of 2021–22, we will not be sending out a program brochure. The new wave of the Delta variant of Covid is still making planning difficult. Once again, we will not have our Wild Feast Potluck in September. Please note that our programs at MPTC this year will be in room A-112. Park in lot C and enter at the main entrance. Proceed to the left, down the stairs and follow the directions to the A wing.
Masks may be required in Room A-112, depending on the covid situation.

Birchwood Tour and Spruce Lake Bog Hike

Saturday, September 11, 10 am
W996 Birchwood Drive, Campbellsport
Owners Connie Ramthun and Bill Volkert have been working for over 35 years to restore a series of native plant communities by managing invasive species in an oak hickory forest and wetland, along with converting former agricultural land into prairie. Over the years they have documented 675 species of plants and animals on their land. After touring Birchwood, we will finish with a short hike at Spruce Lake Bog.
Please bring a mask for areas that will be difficult to keep a social distance.
