Beachcombers

This video and slide show was taken in early May 2016 on the Shores of Lake Michigan at Doctors Park and the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Fox Point, Wisconsin.

Doctors Park has been around for many years, and is thought of as primarily a Fox Point Park. It is however quite charming and worth a visit more than once for anyone. This video is primarily about the beach, which is quite rustic. More can be found at Doctors Park Friends.

The Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is better known and is supported by membership and event fees.  Schlitz Audubon is both a destination for adventure and an oasis from the busyness of life. Their Raptor Program has taken up the mantle of “feathered ambassadors” and is dedicated to providing infor­mation about their wild relatives, habitat concerns, and issues facing raptors today.

The beaches for both destinations are right next to each other and are a worthwhile discovery.


The video for this combined trek can be found HERE. It's on YouTube; please subscribe to my channel for future productions.

Schlitz Audubon Nature Center


Once a farm for the Schlitz Brewery draft horses, the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is Milwaukee’s comprehensive nature center. It offers six miles of trails through 185 unique acres of forests, wetlands, restored prairies, ravines, bluffs and a Lake Michigan shoreline.

You will see evidence of the active and progressive management of the land, restoring habitats unique to our region and reclaiming our bountiful natural history.

These are a few images taken to and along the 1.3 miles of the West Meadows Trail.
