Parks Activities

  1. Birding Hike

    May 24, 2017, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park

    On our birding hikes an experienced bird guide will lead the group through one of Anoka County’s beautiful parks. Along the way we will be watching and listening for birds (and really all kinds of wildlife). We will then identify and keep a list of all the bird species observed. Birding is an activity that you can enjoy every time you are outside. So whether you are an experienced birder or looking to learn the basics, join us for a bird hike! Binoculars are available for use. Pre-registration is required.
