Join poet and Wisconsin Master Naturalist volunteer Chuck Stebelton on the second Sunday of each month to bird by eye and ear with a focus on the life histories of wild birds. We’ll watch for seasonal migrants and resident bird species and seek out the best bird habitats to identify as many species as we can. Please dress for the weather and plan to walk in varied terrain. Bring your binoculars and field guides if you have them; no previous birding experience required.

Upcycled Wind Chimes

Sun Printing
Use the sun to make detailed prints from virtually any object that casts a shadow.
Cyanotype is a sun-printing process and one of the earliest photographic techniques. Discovered in 1842, it produces Prussian blue monochromatic prints. The cyanotype process is simple, flexible, magical, and fun. Stop by the studio to make your own cyanotype to take home.
