UWO, Naturally (in Partnership with Winnebago Audubon Society)
August 29, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is an integral part of the Oshkosh community. If you haven’t been on campus recently, it’s now time for a visit because the 80 acre campus is more than big buildings, parking lots and lawns. UWO has embraced the mission of sustainability and of going green and is recognized as one of the greenest campus’ nationwide. To this end, UWO has converted lawns into beautiful natural prairie areas and spring woodland gardens.
The focus of this field trip is to explore the natural areas looking at plants, insects, birds and whatever else we may discover. Find out why UWO is certified as Tree Campus USA and a Monarch Waystation. Led by Lisa Mick, Grounds Supervisor at UWO, and Anita Carpenter, naturalist and volunteer prairie keeper, this field trip is scheduled for Saturday, August 29 at 10:00 am and will last one to two hours. Meet and park in the new Alumni Welcome and Conference Center at UWO located on the north end of the Wisconsin Avenue bridge and across from Mahoney’s Restaurant. Entrance is on Pearl Ave. Join Winnebago Audubon for a peaceful stroll about campus. This is an easy walk about 1.5 miles in length.
