We believe in connecting people with nature. Our monthly programs are FREE and open to the public. Most meetings are held the 4th Tuesday of each month at Quarry Hill Nature Center. Our speakers give presentations about a wide range of topics - not just birds.
March 22, 2020 - At this time we have decided to cancel all of our scheduled events through the end of April to assist in slowing the spread of Covid-19. We are all excited about spring migration and hope you able to enjoy it out your window, in your backyards and on solo walks in your neighborhoods and parks. Keep safe, keep calm, help those around you and soon we'll be back enjoying our wonderful world.
Owl Fest - Houston, MN - March 7-8, 2020 - We had great time talking about owls and birds in general with hundreds of folks at the festival this weekend. The Bird wheel was in constant motion and the weather was downright balmy - getting into the 50s, Robins, Red-winged Blackbirds and even a Sandhill Crane were spotted in the area. Many thanks go to all of the volunteers who staffed our booth and to the those who worked hard to put on another successful festival!
Bird Walk at Quarry Hill - March 7, 2020 - We had great weather and a good turnout for the bird Walk. 20+ people joined us. The highlight of the walk were 2 good looks at a juvenile Bald Eagle flying overhead. We recorded 10 species, including Donwy WP, Hairy WP, Black-capped Chickadee, White-breasted Nuthatch, Northern Cardinal, House Sparrow, Rock Doves,
Canada Geese and the Bald Eagle. A group of 6 people broke off from the main Walk to find the Hermit & Varied Thrush - but we haven't heard if they found them. Afterwards Terry and Joyce G drove around and saw a Northern Harrier and an Eastern Bluebird.
