In celebration of the upcoming World Migratory Bird Day and the Refuge’s 100th Anniversary this year, join refuge staff and partners on a bird identification walk through the floodplain forest! We’ll walk one mile or less during this FREE, informal program. We often see many birds close by and our pace will be more of a bird “crawl”!

Please help us make this a good experience for all participants by leaving pets at home. Registration is NOT required but parking spaces may fill up. A limited number of binoculars will be available to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis.

Where: Lytles Landing Canoe Access, Lytle Road, Onalaska, WI 54650. Please park at the Brice Prairie Conservation Association Clubhouse on Lytle Road – we’ll meet you there! Please be respectful and park only on the gravel and in a way that leaves maximum space for other visitors.

When: Tues. April 23, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
(see Events page for more info on additional bird walks)

Bird walks take place rain or shine but may be cancelled if there’s a high probability of thunderstorms or really heavy rain – we will update the Facebook page by 3pm on the day of the event if cancellation is necessary. We’ll be walking along the Great River State Trail on a mostly flat surface of gravel or wooden boardwalk. The trail is somewhat narrow and is bordered by water.

World Migratory Bird Day events take place across our community and across the world to raise awareness for the need to conserve migratory birds and their habitats. This year’s theme is “protect insects, protect birds.” Learn more on our national website: https://www.fws.gov/…/202…/world-migratory-bird-day-2024
