One of the very best birding locales in the state; and so close to St. Paul!  We will walk east from the Old Cedar Avenue Bridge and return. Along this portion of the Central Flyway we will watch for migrating passerines. We will carefully check the Bass Ponds and Long Meadow Lake for long-legged waders and  lingering waterfowl. Of note is the old bridge, which is on the US Register of Historic Places due to the type of original construction used.

Special Instructions

Meet at Sears Parking Lot at 7:00 if you want to carpool or at the parking lot for the old bridge at 7:30.

Bring water, binoculars, and a scope if you have one.


To carpool, meet at the SW area of the Sears Parking lot along Marion Street just south of University Avenue.

Go south from I-494 on Cedar Avenue which continues as Old Cedar Avenue which dead-ends in the parking lot for the bridge and Minnesota River Valley NWR trails complex.


No registration required.
