Whitewater Park programs (10/12/2005)
October 15, 2005

All programs begin at the Whitewater Valley Visitor Center (Park Office).

8:30-9:30a.m. Treats and Tweets - Fall migration is underway! Recent arrivals at the visitor center's feeding station include dark-eyed juncos and white-throated sparrows. Late eastern bluebirds have been seen recently. Join us for some good birding, treats (hot beverages and cookies) and conversation. The feeding station is the best place in the park to see birds! After watching the feeders, participants will take a short walk around the visitor center to see, among other birds, migrating hawks. Binoculars and a variety of bird brochures will be available.

10:30-11:30a.m. Snakes of the Blufflands - Sixteen of Minnesota's seventeen kinds of snakes live in the Blufflands. Learn how we can live, work and recreate in the Blufflands and still conserve these awesome creatures. Get an update on this summer's rattlesnake sightings. A slide show about area snakes and live snake program will be given. A bullsnake and a timber rattlesnake will be on hand, literally! Bring your camera for a picture of a snake wrapped around your loved one's neck.

1-3p.m. Fossil Field Trip - On this trip you will find and can keep fossils of plants and animals that lived here hundreds of millions of years ago. They were on earth long before the dinosaurs! What can they tell us about this area's past? Bring transportation, as the site is ten miles from the park.

These programs are provided free of charge, but state park vehicle permits are required. In addition to attending programs, you are invited to use the park's self-guided interpretive services, including visitor center exhibits and self-guided trails. See the "River Reflects Its Watershed" exhibit. History and nature related videos are available for free viewing in the visitor center.
