Madison Bird & Nature Festival

April 28, 2024 @ 12:00 pm 4:00 pm

The 11th Annual Madison FUN Bird and Nature Festival at Warner Park in Madison Wisconsin Sunday on April 28, 2024 noon-4pm is free, welcoming, diverse, all ages, and family friendly.  Take your time up close with owls, hawks and eagles at the ongoing walk through Live Raptor Show by Open Door Bird Sanctuary.  Enjoy a variety of interactive educational bird and nature exhibits hosted by Madison FUN Friends of Urban Nature partner Community and Enviromental Organizations and Friends of Parks groups. Bring the family and kids for a full afternoon of mini bird and nature walks, food carts, music, and fun kids nature games and activities led by Wisconsin Master Naturalists, UW students and other volunteers. The past 3 years participants enjoyed scoping a Bald Eagle nest and young visible from the event and we hope to be able to do that again! .

Year-Round Weekly free Madison Fun Bird & Nature Adventures

Naturalist guided Madison FUN Bird and Nature Adventures are offered all year round with two every week in Madison Wisconsin parks and natural areas!  Free, welcoming, diverse, all ages, family friendly, no registration required unless noted  Outings are by foot, bike, and canoe and feature a variety of educational topics. Kids can be noisy because the main goal is healthy fun outdoors enjoying nearby urban nature and we always see some birds. Madison FUN Friends of Urban Nature is a partnership of Community and Enviromental Organizations and Friends of Parks groups with a shared mission to help Connect Communities and Kids with Nearby Nature and Preserving Nature Close to Home in Urban Parks and Yards.  The Madison FUN program of parks and partner groups co-sponsored year-round regularly weekly local nature outings is now in its 11th year.  This successful program can be duplicated in other cities if interested. See or visit our Facebook page for upcoming events.  See htyp:// for a full year calendar, more outings and details, and Fun Facts, Maps and Activities for self-guided walks.
