Evenings with Audubon: Native Bees

Native bees are a wildly diverse and important group of animals -- numbering in the hundreds of species just in Wisconsin alone! Christy Stewart from the University of Wisconsin-Madison will kick off our fall Evenings with Audubon series with a presentation that opens your eyes to the beauty, variety, and significance of these little pollinators.

Free, family-friendly, and open to the public.

Learn to Birdwatch

It’s fun to observe birds, but knowing exactly what you’re looking or listening for is often the biggest challenge for beginning birders. Madison Audubon is partnering with Madison Parks to bring Learn to Birdwatch to Elver Park. MAS volunteer Abe Lenoch will provide hands-on instruction on how to use binoculars, identifying common birds, what migration is and why birds do it, best birdwatching times and locations and more. All ages are welcome.

A limited number of binoculars will be available for use so please bring your own binoculars if possible.

Thanks to the Madison Parks Foundation all of Madison Parks' 2018 Learn to... workshops are free to attend. Advanced registration is required for all classes (click here to register)
