The Trees for Tomorrow birding team will show you how to improve your birding skills while walking the area’s finest trails. On canoe outings, observe water birds and their behaviors. Learn how to identify warblers, raptors, waterfowl and other species that call the north woods home. This is a special opportunity to learn about northwoods bird while exploring some of Wisconsin's finest northern birding locations.


• Witness loons and eagles while canoeing pristine lakes with minimal human activity.
• View many colorful warblers that call the Northwoods their summer home.
