Great Wisconsin Birdathon

May 8

Wrens of Wisdom Prairie

The Great Wisconsin Birdathon is Wisconsin’s largest fundraiser for bird conservation. Each year bird enthusiasts from across the state form teams with the goal of finding as many unique bird species as possible within a 24-hour period while raising important funds for bird conservation.

Holy Wisdom Monastery is participating in this event for the first time this year! We hope you’ll support our team Wrens of Wisdom Prairie in our efforts to find as many bird species as possible on our property. There are several ways to participate.


Support Wrens of Wisdom Prairie by making a financial contribution

All of the dollars raised will directly support bird conservation. Half of the funds raised will stay at Holy Wisdom Monastery and be used to create and maintain bird habitat here, with the remaining funds going to the Natural Resources Foundation. To make a contribution, click the donate button below.




Join us for a birding tour

We are offering four options for a guided, small group tour with an experienced leader. Group size will be limited to six participants to facilitate social distancing. Birders of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

Tour options include:

  • 6:30 am
  • 8:00 am
  • 10:00 am (family friendly)
  • 7:00 pm

All tours are filled.


Come birding on your own

We invite you to come explore the monastery property Saturday, May 8th on your own or with your own group, and keep track of the birds you see and hear. Submit your list of species to Amy Alstad, aalstad@holywisdommonastery.org or 608-836-1631, x123.
