Bob has delighted participants of this annual hike for years by identifying calls and finding species in the Greenway that participants claim they wouldn’t have found on their own! This is one of our most popular hikes and is a great way to welcome spring to Green Bay! The hike leaves from Christa McAuliffe Park (3100 Sitka Street) at 8 a.m. Please remember noise = no birds!!!
Another popular hike held on Saturday, May 12th at 1:00 p.m. is the Wildflower Hike led by Board President, Charlie Frisk. You will leave from Christa McAuliffe Park (3100 Sitka Street) and hike through the Greenway to find some incredibly interesting wildflowers that exist in our urban gem. You’ll learn about skunk cabbage, marsh marigolds, and many other beautiful and fascinating wildflowers, some of which only show themselves in the spring. Remember to bring your camera!
