Take part in a guided bird hike at St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced birder, these hikes are a great way to get outdoors, listen to the sounds of nature, and learn to identify the birds that call the St. Croix Valley home.

Participants also have the opportunity to contribute to citizen science data collection by completing bird count surveys with your guide. The surveys collected will assist our Natural Resources team and related work in conjunction with the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Fund grant.

Remember to dress for the weather and activity. We recommend bringing your binoculars and a water bottle. Other recommended items include sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, hiking or tennis shoes, bug spray and snacks.

Bring water and a hoop if you have one, though there will be Nice’n’Big dance hoops provided as well. Presented by Mimy Constantine, Hula Hoop Instructor.
