Bird Watching Trek

April 23 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am CDT

Birdwatching Trek: Explore some of the best Refuge units for bird watching in the spring season. Each spring offers a chance to observe a variety of birds that stop at the refuge during their migration. The early spring walks will feature waterfowl, and the later spring walks will see the first of the migrant sparrows and warblers of the season. If you have them, bring along your binoculars and favorite field guide. For questions about these walks, please contact volunteer naturalist Craig at 952-240-7647. Pre-Registration Required.

For more information and a link to the Signup page for this field trip, visit the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuges website. In the events section of the refuge’s website there will be a link to the signup page for the field trip you are interested in joining. These walks will be limited to 25 participants, so register early.

For the safety of staff and participants, outdoor programming on the MVNWR will be cancelled in the event local areas are under an active advisory (Winter Weather, Wind Chill) or an active warning (Blizzard, Winter Storm, Ice Storm, Wind Chill, Thunderstorm). Programming will also be cancelled in the event the temperature is at or below 0°F. Participants will be notified of cancelation via SignUp message.
