Events – Programs and Field Trips

Audubon offers programs, field trips, activities, and workshops related to the environment. From October through May, monthly evening programs take place at Moraine Park Technical College. From National Avenue, turn into parking lot O and enter door O-1. Classrooms are on your left. Audubon programs are open to the public with no admission fee. Adults, families, and young people with an interest in environmental issues are encouraged to attend.

Audubon’s Weekly Summer Evening Walks have been canceled this season due to the pandemic.
We encourage you and your families to explore some of the beautiful trails in our area on your own until we can safely resume group walks.

Ziegler Wine Walk

Wednesday, September 9, 5:30 pm

Drive to Ziegler Winery, W3953 Winnebago Heights Road (Take Highway 151 north from Fond du Lac toward Pipe. Turn left on Winnebago Heights Road). We will meet in the parking lot and go to the beginning of the “Wine Walk,” a trail through the woods and alongside a scenic brook. The path ends near the vineyard. The leisurely walk will be about a half hour. We can spread out and social distance during the walk. Afterward, we can sit outdoors on the patio and order wine from the grapes grown on-site. (Indoor seating is also available in their large venue.) There are also appetizers and pizza available for purchase. Children are welcome with a parent or supervising adult.

Garlic Mustard Pulls and Buckthorn Removal
