Armstrong Wetlands / Rice Lake State Park Field Trip

Meet in the Hy-Vee Barlow’s south parking lot (nearest Civic Center Drive) at 7 am to car pool to the wetlands (about a 45 minute drive). Dress for the weather, bring your own binoculars, lunch, snacks and water. Trails are generally good at Rice Lake but be prepared for uneven ground and muddy/wet areas.  At Armstrong Wetlands we’ll be parking on the edge of a gravel road. Between both locations we should see several kinds of waterfowl, shorebirds, herons, raptors, woodpeckers, early arriving warblers, and possibly Sand Hill Cranes. Note: Vehicles entering Rice Lake State Park park must have a MN State Park sticker or purchase a day pass.  Note: this field trip will be postponed if the wetlands are dry or if it’s raining.
