Bird Lover Series

BlueJayPortraitHawthorn Hollow has long been a destination for bird lovers in Southeastern Wisconsin.   With our floodplain and upland forests, arboretum and meadow, and wildflower prairie areas, Hawthorn Hollow is a sanctuary for many species of birds during both the springtime migration period and throughout the nesting season.

We are proud to be partnered with Rick Fare of the Kenosha-Racine Audubon Society to offer a variety of classes for our birdlover friends of The Hollow.
