TOWN OF EAST TROY — Looking for a fun way to spend Mother’s Day morning? Come to the free Bird Walk at Beulah Bog in the town of East Troy, sponsored by Kettle Moraine Land Trust and Friends of the Mukwonago River. The walk begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, May 13.

Birding experts Derek Sallman from Friends of the Mukwonago River and Jim Marrari from the Kettle Moraine Chapter of the Wild Ones will serve as guides.

The guides will lead participants on the trail at Beulah Bog State Natural Area on Stringers Bridge Road, which features a restored woodland as well as the bog itself. Several species of birds call Beulah Bog home and there should be migratory activity as well. Spring plants may be in bloom, including several carnivorous species.

The family-friendly hike is on an ungroomed footpath with some hilly areas and may include a boardwalk, weather permitting. The trails are not stroller-friendly.

Comfortable walking shoes and binoculars are recommended. Pets should be left at home because they would scare the birds.

Parking is limited. If possible, participants are asked to car pool from the park-and-ride lot at the East Troy Airport on County Highway L to Beulah Bog on Stringers Bridge Road, 0.8 mile south of County Highway J in the town of East Troy.

The bird walk will conclude at 10:30 a.m.

Registration is required by calling Maggie Zoellner at 262-949-7211.
