Sunfish Lake Park
10000 Stillwater Lane North,
Lake Elmo, MN 55042
Sunfish Lake Park is a large, hilly, mature woodland with some wetland openings. Migrating and nesting species overlap at this time of year so we may have an interesting bird list. Of course 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 habitats favorable to many more species. Stillwater schools’ cross-country ski teams train on some of the paths we will walk.
From I-694 take Exit 55 (just south of MN 36), onto Hwy 5, go east, and bear left onto Stillwater Lane. After ~ 100 yards, turn left (north) at the Sunfish Lake Park entrance sign. Meet in the parking lot.
Bring water, binoculars, insect repellent, and a bird book.
Moderate because of hills with well-defined, mostly wide, grassy paths.
