Carpooling is advised for this trip. Participants will go on an odyssey beginning in Waukesha County and traveling into Jefferson and Walworth Counties! This trip mixes a couple of 1/4 mile hikes along level, well-groomed trails with roadside stops that will take travelers through habitats ranging from pinewood forests to the largest wet prairie east of the Mississippi. Target species will vary depending on which specialties are being found in the forest in any given year. Common and rare birds present over the past couple of years have included Red-headed Woodpecker, Red-shouldered Hawk, Acadian Flycatcher, Blue-headed Vireo, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Black-throated Green, Hooded, Kentucky, Pine, Cerulean, & Prairie Warblers, Yellow-breasted Chat, Henslow's and Lark Sparrows, and Orchard Oriole.

Bring along water and snacks. If you have questions about this trip contact Andrea Szymczak at
