Go Birding at Waukau Creek Nature Preserve


Springtime is here, and so is spring migration. Winnebago Audubon invites you to go birding with us at Waukau Creek Nature Preserve on Saturday, May 18 at 7:00 am.  Meet us at the preserve to search for migratory warblers, vireos, thrushes, and other species transitioning through the area. The trails are moderately difficult. Wear footwear suitable for potentially muddy conditions and bring binoculars if you have them. We will also have binoculars available to share.

Waukau Creek Nature Preserve is a 64-acre preserve characterized by steep-walled ravines and broad creek floodplain, providing a unique and beautiful locale for identifying migrant warblers and viewing spring wildflowers. We never know what we might find!  

Directions: The nature preserve is located at 2987 Delhi Road, Omro (near Waukau) in Winnebago County. From Highway 41, take State Rd 44 south to State Road 91 west. Turn right (north) onto State Road 116. Turn left onto County Road K and then right onto Delhi Road. The nature preserve will be on the right, with a parking area on the left.
