The first place I wanted to visit in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area, just north of the city, was Schlitz Audubon Center. They have numerous trails for all abilities, including physically handicapped. Informative, educational programs for children of all ages and resources within their facility to entice everyone to be more aware of the environment and wildlife! I thought their paper towel challenge of only using one towel was great too!
I spent time wondering around the ponds and walking the trails to see the butterflies, wildflowers and birds. I saw 17 different species of birds, four are new to my life list: red-breasted nuthatch, black-capped chickadee, Eastern bluebird and red-bellied woodpecker … don’t believe it’s name, it is not red-bellied! You should also walk the trail overlooking Lake Michigan or go right down to the shoreline! People were walking along the beach. I spent hours at the center, loved it, and would recommend all to visit it.
Photos taken at the Schlitz Audubon Center are below and then I went to the Lynden Sculpture Garden where you can walk around the garden’s grounds as you wish and see the sculptures. Photos from there are included here too! Quite an enjoyable day despite the gray skies, but no rain!
