The Great Wisconsin Birdathon is Wisconsin’s largest fundraiser for bird conservation. Each year bird enthusiasts from across the state form teams with the goal of finding as many unique bird species as possible while raising important funds for bird conservation. The event begins at 10 a.m. (no end time provided) at 4200 County Road M, Middleton.

Holy Wisdom Monastery is participating in this event for our fourth year. Please visit their website to register.

There are several ways to participate…

Join us for a Birding Tour:

We are offering five options for a guided, small group tour with an experienced leader, including one ‘sit’ tour with minimal walking required. Group size will be limited to 10 participants.
Birders of all ages and experience levels are welcome, and the 10:00 am tour will be specifically geared towards families. All tours are free, usually fill up fast and will close when they are full. Tour options include:

6:30 a.m. – walking tour with Howard Fenton
7:30 a.m. – sit spot birding with David Liebl
8 a.m. – walking tour with Sylvia Marek
10 a.m. – walking tour with Julie Melton (specifically geared for families)
Noon – walking tour with Amy Alstad

Come Birding on Your Own:

We invite you to explore the monastery grounds on Saturday, May 11th on your own, and keep track of the birds you see and hear.
Submit your list of species to Amy Alstad aalstad@holywisdommonastery.org or 608-836-1631, x123.
