Event Description

Details:  Trails are moderate with some hills.  Walks are leisurely as we stop to observe wildlife and interesting flora along the way.  Binoculars are recommended – we have pairs to use, too. Bring water and sun protection. 

Signup is requested, not required, at carlson.clare@countyofdane.com so we can contact you if the walk is cancelled. Cancellation is also posted on the Friends events page at www.friendsofcapitalsprings.org/events/  by 8am before of the walk.
