Accessible Birding

Saturday10/158:30 am - 3:30 pm

We welcome people of all ages and ability levels to attend our accessible birding event at Upham Woods. Explore the trails at your own pace or join a guided activity. These activities are designed with access in mind, but if you would like to request additional accommodations, please email us at [email protected] at least 10 days before the event.

9-10:30 a.m.: Guided Birding: This guided bird hike will stay on flat paved trails and wooden boardwalks and focus on identifying birds both by sight and by sound. Instructors will provide walking sticks, portable seating and binoculars, and will stick to trails near buildings/restrooms for folks who need a break.

11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.: Raptor show: Join our indoor presentation as you learn about raptor adaptations and meet a live bird. Chairs will be provided. This PowerPoint will include closed captions and a sign language interpreter upon request.

1:30-3 p.m.: Bird sensory exploration: Spend time exploring birds with different senses and at your own pace. There will be bird artifacts, like feathers and skulls, to touch, iPads to listen to bird sounds and binoculars for sight. Separate quiet rooms are available as needed.

If you would like to volunteer at this event, please email [email protected]. This free event was made possible through the UW-Madison Dean’s Innovation grant. Light refreshments will be provided.
