As most of you know, the Parks Dept. in Madison has killed geese in the past – they are in the process of counting and hazing them – the less geese counted and found in the parks and beaches, the more likely they won’t kill them. We want to do EVERYTHING WE CAN to keep this from happening again and hope that you can help.

The Parks Department is looking for volunteers to count and “haze” geese for 15-30 minutes daily, as needed, until a given flock moves to another site. This will occur at various sites including Cherokee Park, Tenney Park and Beach, Vilas Park and Beach, Warner Park and Beach, as well as Odana Hills Golf Course and Yahara Hills Golf Course.

Please be respectful when signing up and volunteering.

​Please contact Paul Quinlan, Conservation Resource Supervisor, at for more information and to register as a volunteer.
