Wildlife Experience Weekend At Crex Meadows

Thursday, May 17th, 2012 at 11:09 am

Last weekend Crex Meadows in Grantsburg celebrated International Migratory Bird Day. While observing birds from Memory Lake Park, 43 different bird species were spotted!

This weekend you have the opportunity to add to that species count. Saturday, May 19th starts Wildlife Experience Weekend. Join expert birder and retired biologist Jim Hoefler for a wildlife talk beginning at 5 p.m. at Crex Meadows Education & Visitor Center.

After the presentation, caravan into the meadows to try to spot wildlife. Sunday morning continues with a tour at 4 a.m. Cost is $10, space limited to 10 people. Too early for you? There will be a 7 a.m. tour for $5. Call for reservations or questions.
