Itasca Winter Bird Count is Dec. 16

This holiday season, take part in the annual winter bird count at Itasca State Park as we participate in the Audubon Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, Dec. 16.

Explore Itasca's count area in search of our winter bird residents. Stay a few hours or spend the whole day. Information collected is used to track migration patterns and changes in winter bird species abundance throughout North America.

Meet at the Jacob V. Brower Visitor Center lobby between 7:30 and 8 a.m. for assignment of count areas. Bird count will run from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Note: The entire program is held outdoors. Dress warmly for outdoor winter conditions. Bring your lunch if staying for the entire day. For questions and further details, call 218-699-7259.
