Sept. 11th-Volunteer Planting Day
We received hundreds of plant plugs (donated from Prairie Nursery) over the summer and we need to get them in the ground before winter! Please come out and help us give these plants a permanent home in the Baird Creek Greenway on Thursday, September 11th. We will meet at 5:00 p.m. at the Prairie Restoration area on McKenzie Lane. Click on the following link for directions- McKenzie Lane Google Map. Please do NOT park in the apartments’ parking lot. There should be plenty of space to park on the street.
Make sure to dress for a walk in the woods (we suggest you do not wear flip-flops) and if you have work gloves and small gardening tools please bring them along. If not, we have some tools and gloves you can borrow.
Sept. 27th at 1 p.m.- One Fish, Two Fish Hike
Join Charlie Frisk, Baird Creek Preservation Foundation Board President, on Saturday, September 27 at 1pm at Christa McAuliffe Park (3100 Sitka Street) for the One Fish, Two Fish Hike. Charlie will lead us to some of the best places to find the largest number of fish in Baird Creek. He will use a large seine to temporarily capture some of the fish (and other aquatic creatures) to take a look at the biodiversity of the creek.
This hike is a “kid focused” event, so bring the whole family! Remember to dress for the weather, and be prepared to encounter a few hills and non-paved trails. The Baird Creek Preservation Foundation (BCPF) hosts free guided hikes through the Baird Creek Greenway that are open to the public. The hikes are led by experts in the related area and are a great way to learn, have a little fun and enjoy the outdoors. This year, all hikes are co-sponsored by the Northeastern Wisconsin Chapter of the Audubon Society
