Holiday Gifts at the Nature Store

Our Nature Store is filled with treasures that will delight any nature lover. Nature-themed books line our shelves, including field guides, environmental essay collections, and picture books for the littlest ones. You’ll also find an assortment of locally-made jewelry, cards, and crafts. Schlitz Audubon fans will enjoy our selection of t-shirts featuring our logo or a bird from our Raptor Program, as well as logo pint glasses, pocket-sized Schlitz Audubon notebooks, and more.

Here are more of our favorite suggestions for holiday gifts!

Nature Activity Learning Boxes

Your child will discover a fun-filled world of learning and exploration in your own home! Each Nature Activity Learning Box explores a comprehensive bird theme, such as Everything Birds and Feathered Migration, and contains five science-based, hands-on lessons to teach content and inspire creative and applied thinking. All five lessons contain an introduction and overview, lesson sheets, activity instruction, a vocabulary list, and comprehension questions. The corresponding video lessons are narrated by our own Schlitz Audubon Raptor Educators. Our hands-on learning boxes can be shipped to any Wisconsin residence or purchased in our Nature Store. $75 each.​

Holiday Themed Items

Decorate your Christmas tree with Schlitz Audubon ornaments, made by hand at the Center from recycled wood and branded with our logo. Some are made from ash trees felled by the emerald ash borer. $5.00 each.

The fair-trade project Women of the Cloud Forest offers a variety of bird ornaments made from sustainable balsa wood. A cooperative of artisans in Nicaragua hand-carve these pieces, which are then painted by a collective of farm-working families. $11.99 each.

In addition to ornaments, we offer holiday cards made by Crane Creek Graphics. Themes include songbirds and raptors. The cards are printed in the USA on 100% recycled paper. $14.99 for a box of 10 cards.

Nourish Natural Products: Holiday Bundles
