St. Paul Audubon Program Meeting 

Event Date: Thursday, February 10, 2011 

Sand Country Wildlife 

Produced by Walter Breckenridge 

Many birders put high value on bird-watching and bird surveying in areas like Bunker Hills Regional Park, Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, Helen Allison Savanna SNA and, when we can, the AHATS site in Arden Hills. That’s because these all lie on the Anoka Sand Plain, whose unusual ecology attracts distinctive birds and other wildlife. 

Lark sparrows are reliably found on the sand plain, as are sandhill cranes, eastern towhees, brown thrashers and many others. A 65-minute film produced by Walter Breckenridge in the 1960s, while he was director of the Bell Museum of Natural History, tells the engaging story of the sand plain’s natural history. 

Escape winter’s chill by traveling via film to the sand plain to learn more about this fascinating area. Everyone is invited to this free Saint Paul Audubon program on Thursday, February 10 at 7:00 p.m. at Fairview Community Center, 1910 West County Road B in Roseville, just west of Fairview Avenue. The event is open to the public, with free parking. A social time with refreshments begins at 6:45.
