Schlitz Audubon Nature Center


Spring at Schlitz Audubon

Whether you prefer wetlands, woodlands, or prairies, each habitat has life emerging in this season. Along the trails, wildflowers spring through the remaining leaves covering the forest floor. The southern portion of the Center’s property is a reptile and amphibian haven. Look up in in our woods to see brightly-colored warblers gracing the tree tops, with their radiant yellows, stark blacks, and brilliant blues on display.

From sprout to flower to fruit, it’s a great time to begin discovering at Schlitz Audubon.
