Lulu Lake State Natural Area
Tuesday, May 10, 2022 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$45.00 – $60.00
Lulu Lake State Natural Area contains rare natural communities that have been virtually eliminated from the rest of southeastern Wisconsin. Their protection means they remain largely undistributed, resulting in exceptionally high quality and diverse wetland and upland communities on glacial topography in the Kettle Moraine region.
Join Senior Ecologist Don Quintenz as he shares this special place where he began his career as a naturalist 48 years ago. We’ll explore three ecosystems and the wildlife found in each, beginning with a dry oak forest. We’ll then pass through a variety of wetlands – including marshes and sedge meadows – along the stream and spring pond that feed Lulu Lake. We’ll also visit a dry prairie that will be sprinkled with bright colors from birdsfoot violets, shooting stars, and other spring blooms.
We’ll be visiting during the height of spring migration and will be sure to hear and see many birds passing through. Most of this program takes place walking up and down steep hills on unpaved trails.
The field trip begins and ends at Lulu Lake State Natural Area. In order to maintain social distancing, you will need to provide your own transportation to and from Lulu Lake. Further details and directions will be emailed to registered participants prior to the trip.
This program will take place entirely outdoors. Please read our currentbefore participation.
