Buddy's Place in Lake Mills, WI
6:55 AM - 9:00 AM
Start the New Year with Madison Audubon. Meet at Buddy’s Place, the old farmstead at N7710 Hwy 89. If there is good snow and you have snowshoes, bring them along. Otherwise, sturdy boots for uneven terrain will do. You will enjoy the predawn light as we meander through the prairie, arriving at the marsh overlook by 7:23 a.m. to see the sun rise over the Faville Grove Marsh. We will spend the early morning exploring the winter marsh and surrounding uplands. From I-94, take the Lake Mills/Waterloo exit north on Highway 89 about 2.5 miles to the driveway on the right immediately past North Shore Road.
