Whitewater State Park Naturalist Programs (04/16/2006)
April 22, 2006

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

8-9a.m. Tweets and Treats - Join the Park Naturalist at the visitor center's feeding station for some good bird watching, treats (hot beverages and cookies) and conversation. New birds are arriving every day! What have you seen so far this spring? The feeding station is the best place in the park to see birds. Maps of birding hot spots, checklists and binoculars will be available.

Late Morning Trout Fishing for Beginners - Presenter Mike Jeresek

This family activity is designed to take away the fear of trout fishing. Everyone can enjoy trout fishing and catch trout. Even you! Discover the various ways that people trout fish. Participants can bring equipment for fishing after the activity, though they will not be fishing during the activity. As group size is limited, call 507-932-3007, extension 0 for reservations and exact time.

1:30-3p.m. Early Spring Wildflower Walk - Spring is finally here! On this short, leisurely walk you will see many favorite wildflowers including Dutchman's-breeches, bloodroot, hepatica, spring beauty, marsh marigold, false rue anemone and trout lily. Bring your camera! Bring transportation as we drive a short distance to the trailhead.

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. A number of nature and history related videos are available for viewing in the visitor center.
