Schlitz Audubon Nature Center

Winter at Schlitz Audubon

Each season offers a wide array of unique opportunities to witness nature’s cycles – and winter is no different. January is regarded as presenting the greatest scenic beauty of the year at the lake shore. Magnificent ice canos and other formations are continually being created, melted, and re-formed. Throughout the Center, snow-capped trails provide evidence of how animals make their way through this season. Toward March, we begin to see more sun and our shoreline becomes the seasonal visiting place for thousands of migrating ducks. Winter offers a multitude of treasures awaiting your discovery.

Winter Panorama

For our Winter issue we decided to create a special Lake Michigan edition to showcase just how Great Lake Michigan is!

Panorama also includes a listing of programs taking place during January, February, and March. Paper copies were mailed to members on December 13.

Schlitz Audubon Annual Report

Our Annual Report highlights how your support has helped Schlitz Audubon invite discovery in the past year. Your donations have strengthened our Preschool Urban Outreach Program, built the Raptor Exhibit and Mystery Lake Boardwalk, and improved habitat for native plants and animals. Thank you for making a difference!

In the Gallery | Perimeter by Kevin Miyazaki 

Perimeter: A Contemporary Portrait of Lake Michigan was a project commissioned by the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University, inviting Milwaukee-based photographer Kevin Miyazaki to create new work addressing the topic of fresh water and the Great Lakes.

On display are portraits of the people Kevin met around the perimeter of Lake Michigan, as well as stunning photographs of this Great Lake contained within.

Learn more about attending a Gallery Talk with photographer Kevin Miyazaki on Sunday, February 12.
