Whitewater State Park from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. If you would like to join me, meet at REI in Bloomington at 7:00 a.m. to carpool. Each year golden eagles winter in the Blufflands of SE MN and SW WI. On this field trip we will visit areas near Whitewater State Park where we are likely to see golden eagles. A wood fire will be burning and treats and hot beverages will be provided at the park’s visitor center. This activity is part of an area golden eagle survey. Last spring one eagle was outfitted with a ‘GPS’ and has returned to the area. The park would like to know how many to expect so please let me know ASAP. We can go skiing or snowshoeing after the count is complete. Bring snack, lunch, water and skis/snow shoes. The park has snowshoes for rent. Vehicles will need state park passes and skiers will need state ski passes. Estimated cost: gas+. Max trip size: open.
