Guided bird hikes in Washington County set to begin April
Washington County Parks is inviting Minnesotans to the first of nine guided bird hikes on April 8 at St. Croix Regional Park from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Participants can contribute to citizen science data collection by observing and identifying the county’s bird count. The hike will cross turf, gravel, and paved trail depending on trail conditions, said a spokesperson for Washington County.
The program is free with a Washington County Parks permit ($7/day or $30/year). It is open to all ages and abilities, and the parks recommend bringing binoculars for better viewing.
A complete list of the rotating bird hikes throughout Washington County can be found below or on their website.
