- Global Environmental Sustainability is a program being presented by Barbara Caan who spent three amazing weeks in South Africa last summer. She traveled with a group of nine Wisconsin educators and joined up with nine South Africa teachers through a program with the UW - Stevens Point. Her presentation will be at Maywood on Thursday, April 25, 7 p.m. Program is free. You can call (920) 459-3906 to pre-register.

- Arbor Day at will take place on Friday, April 26th. but Maywood will flip it and tie this event to its Saturday, May 4th Join Hands Day. This is intended to be a “giving back to nature day” by planting trees, removing invasive species, enhancing wildflower areas and more. Because Maywood will need to plan for food and snacks for the volunteers, those planning on attending will need to call.

For those working with Girl and Boy Scouts, church groups, 4-H, and others who like to or need to sign up for service projects, Join Hands Day at Maywood might fit perfectly.

- Saturday Morning Bird Walk is an annual spring event promoted at Maywood by the Sheboygan County Audubon Society. With migrating birds on the move, Audubon volunteers invite people interested in bird identification to come along with them as they travel the park’s trails. They will be going out on Saturday, April 27; 7:30 a.m. Meet at the Maywood parking lot, bring binoculars and bird books if you have them and dress for the weather. Program is free.

Note: These walks will take place every Saturday through May 25th at the same time and place as listed above. On Saturday, May 4, as part of the celebration of the International Migratory Bird Day, Bill Volkert, outstanding (retired) DNR naturalist will hold a bird banding session which participants can observe the netting and banding of migrating birds. You may want to call to check on the banding session times and mark your calendar for this exciting activity.

- Paddling the Albany River is a program to be presented by Larry Ten Pas and Tom Friedrichs. They will discuss and show the route fur traders took linking Manitoba to Hudson Bay and explain what this river offers for a variety of canoeing conditions and scenery.
