South Woods is a mature maple woods with a creek running through it. This is a wonderful area to see colorful spring wildflowers carpeting the forest floor. While overhead avian spring migrants may be flitting in the trees. We should be here during the peak of spring migration with hopes of seeing warblers, vireos, flycatchers, tanagers and many more. Wear footwear suitable for possible muddy conditions. After the field trip, please join us at Knuth Brewing Co. for lunch in Ripon.
