Special invitation to MOU members
The staff of Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve (CCESR) and
Red-headed Woodpecker Recovery (RHWR) invite MOU members to
a rare day of savanna birding, Saturday, June 8, 2013 from 8:00 a.m.
to 2:00 p.m.. Enjoy 54,000 acres of trails which are normally closed to the
public. Expect to see the largest concentration of red-headed woodpeckers
in the Midwest, (last year over 160 birds) plus lark sparrows, eastern towhee,
Henslow sparrow, orchard oriole, and other prairie birds. Peak into nest
cavities with our new cavity camera.
Cedar Creek is located about 40 miles due north of the Twin Cities
on Highway 65 (Mpls. Central Ave.) Easy to find. Take 65 north
to East Bethel and turn right on 237th Ave. by the British Petroleum gas
station and Subway store. Go one (1) mile east to the T in road and turn
left for less than a mile, then turn right on 2660 Fawn Lake Drive. Bear left
toward the buildings where tours will be featured. First tour 8:00 a.m.
Last tour 2:00 p.m. No fees, but registration is requested and is limited.
Please call LuAnn Marotte at (763) 434-5131 to register.
