Head to Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge in Zimmerman this Saturday for a bird walk and nature exploration!
This Saturday, May 15 is World Migratory Bird Day, and you can celebrate by venturing out to the Stroll at Sherburne. This free outdoor event takes place from 10 am – 2 pm and is geared toward beginning birders and families with young kids.
Two different walking loops will be open. One will provide signage with tips for how to identify birds, the other will include pages of the storybook Stellaluna which tells the story of a young bat growing up with a group of birds.
Staff will be onsite to answer questions, hand out bird checklists, and check out binoculars. Flush restrooms with baby changing stations are located onsite.
Be sure to bring your walking shoes as well as water and snacks! Face masks are required when social distancing between members of separate households cannot be maintained.
For more information, visit the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge website.
