Sunfish Lake Park is a large, hilly, mature woodland with some wetland openings in Lake Elmo. Later migrating and nesting species overlap at this time of year. Sightings cannot be guaranteed, but species normally found in large woodlands have resided here in recent years. Natural clearings that have ponds are favorable for a nice variety of waterbirds. Human-made clearings provide plenty of edge habitat favorable to many more species. Stillwater schools’ cross-country ski teams train on some of the paths we will walk.

DIRECTIONS Drive on I-694 to Exit 55 (just south of MN 36), for Hwy 14/34th St. N., go east 1.8 miles, then bear left onto Stillwater Lane. After 100 yards, turn left (north) at the Sunfish Lake Park entrance sign. Meet in the parking lot.

INFORMATION    Bring water, binoculars, insect repellent, and a field guide.

REGISTRATION    None required

DIFFICULTY     Moderate, well-defined walking paths with some hills.
