Naturalist Sylvia Marek will share her enthusiasm and exceptional knowledge about this very special southern Wisconsin ecological community--the best remaining example of this type of vegetation, and a National Natural Landmark.
Meet at Holy Wisdom Monastery at 9:00 am to carpool to Abraham's Woods near Albany, about one h our from Madison, or meet at Abraham's Woods at 10:00 am (directions will be sent to you when you register).
