Birding with Chuck Stebelton and Discovering the Urban Forest
October 16, 2022 All day
8:30am – 10:00am. Join birder Chuck Stebelton the second Sunday of each month (except October, when the walk is on the third Sunday) for a small-group, socially distanced bird walk on the grounds. Keeping to the perimeter of the garden, we’ll watch for seasonal migrants and resident bird species and seek out the best bird habitats to identify as many species as we can. Please dress for the weather and plan to walk in varied terrain. Bring your binoculars if you have them; no previous birding experience required.
1:00pm – 3:00pm. Join the Land Managers of the Lynden Sculpture Garden on a walk around the grounds to discover Lynden’s urban forest. On this walk we will discuss the various trees and shrubs that make up the forest, urban forest management techniques, and our exciting new tree inventory project which we are conducting with the assistance of a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Urban Forestry Grant. This tree inventory will result in a management plan to help care for our valuable urban forest far into the future.
