Winter Hike and Chili Potluck
Sunday, January 29
Winter Hike 1:30 – 4:30 PM
Winter is a great time to explore the Cedarburg Bog. Field Station Director, Jim Reinartz will lead the annual hike into the heart of the Bog if the Bog is solidly frozen and the ice is safe. This is a 4-mile hike, and weather and/or snow and ice conditions can make this hike challenging. In the past we have hiked in bitter cold, on a warm day with wet slush over the ice, in deep snow, with no snow at all on very slick ice, and when we are lucky, with a little snow over solid ice. If the Bog is not solidly frozen, we will still take a hike in the uplands. The Field Station website will be updated several days prior to the hike with snow and ice conditions.
Chili Dinner 4:30 PM
You don’t have to hike to join us for the chili potluck. We will provide the chili and beverages; if you can, bring a dish to share.
Suggested donation for the Hike and Dinner is $5
Friday, February 17, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Most of the owls in the Cedarburg Bog do not migrate. If conditions are right, we should have a good shot at hearing and/or maybe seeing a few of our resident Eastern Screech, Barred, and Great-horned Owls and some overwintering or migrating Northern Saw Whet Owls as well! Come and learn the calls and lifestyles of our owls. Bring a small flashlight, binoculars, and be sure to dress for the weather.
