A rotating schedule of bird hikes throughout Washington County Parks will continue with a trek from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Oct. 24 at Big Marine Park Reserve.

Hikers should park in the playground parking lot, where the group will meet.

Registration is required, as group size is limited, and may be found on the Washington County Parks web page.

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.
