Birds, Bikes, & Brews 2019

  • Capital Brewery & Pheasant Branch Conservancey Middleton, WI (map)

New and improved this year: Birds, Bikes, & Brews REVAMP! This awesome event combines three of our favorite things in one stellar afternoon! Join us to BIKE through Middleton and Pheasant Branch Conservancy, BIRD as you go, and enjoy a cold BREW after your ride at Capital Brewery

**Plus, it's all for a great cause: proceeds from registrations go to Madison Audubon's conservation and education programs.**

Here are the details:

  • Join us at any time between 12-5 p.m. at Capital Brewery

  • We'll give you a map and a checklist, and you'll head out on route through Middleton and Pheasant Branch Conservancy to look for as many birds as you can find while on two wheels.*

  • We'll have several birding stations set up along the way, with helpful volunteers. You can stop, take a peek through a spotting scope, and learn something new.

  • When you're done birding and biking, the route brings you right back to Capital Brewery, where we'll have a cold one, a band, and lots of fun waiting for you!

*No pressure, no rush. Enjoy the ride, and know that birders of ALL skill levels are welcome. Even if you don't consider yourself a birder, we guarantee you'll have fun (and there's good beer involved).
