Welcome Back The Herons

Great blue herons start returning to their rookery on the Mississippi River toward the end of March. Join Park Ranger Sharon at Marshall Terrace Park in Minneapolis as we watch them rebuild nests and do a little flirting. If we are lucky, we might see the resident peregrine falcons fly over, as well as migrating ducks like buffleheads and goldeneye.

Family Ice Fishing at Lake Rebecca (Hastings)

We supply the bait, poles, tackle, encouragement and instruction so all you need to do is show up and join us on the ice. We even drill the holes through which you fish, but you can drill your own if you wish! Be sure to join a ranger in a shelter and while warming up view the mysterious world below the ice through an underwater camera.
