Spring at Schlitz Audubon
Spring has arrived and the shining sun reveals growth everywhere between the forest floor and blossoming tree buds. Throughout early spring, Red-winged Blackbirds perch on cattails and relay their trademark, “Conk-a-ree.” In May, watch for the ephemeral beauty of wildflowers in the wetlands and forested areas. June is the celebration of basking, with turtles and frogs sunning throughout our ponds. Enjoy exploring this celebration of rebirth on our six miles of trails and Lake Michigan shoreline. Learn more about spring at the Center.
For our Spring issue we chose to celebrate birds. Read about warblers, feathers, early childhood education that incorporates birds, and more!
Panorama also includes a listing of programs taking place during April, May, and June. Paper copies were mailed to members on March 10. To view a digital version, click here.

Land Management Equipment Gift
Thanks to generous donations by Christine Symchych and Jim McNulty, and Margarete and David Harvey, Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is now able to purchase a compact track loader. This critical piece of equipment will support the Center’s land management, facilities, and capital project needs over the next 15 years, laying the groundwork for future generations of plants, animals, and people.
This track loader will utilize multiple attachments to carry out our land management strategy, and you can participate by supporting this project. Read more.
