Purgatory Creek Park in Eden Prairie

Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 6:30 pm until dusk

George Skinner, Anne Hanley 952-936-0811

This Eden Prairie park, just north of the Flagship Athletic Club and across the street from the SW Transit center, often has some interesting birds in or near the pond. We’ll hike around the north side of the lake to the blind on the west side of the lake if time permits. The types of birds found varies with the water levels. Let’s see if the Caspian Terns are back.
