Bird Watching Trek at Old Cedar Ave Bridge

Saturday, March 3, 2012 from 9:00 – 11:00 am

Craig Mandel 952-546-3407

March is an excellent time to search for migrating waterfowl and we may see upwards of 20 species of different ducks, geese, and swans during this trek. Birders of all skill levels are welcome on this walk. Bring binoculars, and dress for mud and the weather.

This walk is part of the Aldo Leopold weekend celebration at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
