Spring Birds and Wildflowers of the Baraboo Hills

  • Hemlock Draw S8440A Hemlock Road, North Freedom (at village of Leland - Mossman home)

Come check out what’s happening on a spring day at Hemlock Draw, especially the display of spring wildflowers, which include some of the special northern species that thrive in these hemlock groves of the Baraboo Hills.  

The Louisiana Waterthrushes will be back, singing their long ringing melodies along the creek, phoebes should be nest-building on the shaded sandstone cliffs, and with luck we’ll find migrant birds in force. We’ll stop at the ancient quartzite sea-stacks and see how nature continues to heal the scars left by former human activities and more recent storm events.

Only part of trip will be on trails. Bring water, lunch, and appropriate footwear for rugged terrain. We’ll meet at the Mossman home and carpool.
