Guided morning bird hike Nov. 10 at Big Marine Park

A rotating schedule of bird hikes throughout Washington County Parks continues. The next hike will be 9-10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at Big Marine Park Reserve.

Learn to identify the birds that call the St. Croix Valley home and contribute to citizen science data collection by completing bird count surveys with the guide. The surveys collected will assist the county's natural resources team and related work in conjunction with the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Fund grant.

This is a one-hour guided hike; meet at the playground parking lot.

This program is free with a parks vehicle permit, $7 daily, $30 annually and is open to people of all ages and abilities. ADA accommodations can be made as needed.
