Birding Big Day hike


A Birding Big Day Hike will start at 7:45 a.m. Sunday, May 12, at the Northland Arboretum in Brainerd.

The bird count is sponsored by the Brainerd Lakes Area Audubon Society and the Northland Arboretum.

Both amateurs and experts will gather to identify and count birds at the arboretum. Participants will divide into teams and then head out on the trails to see how many bird species they can find from 8 a.m. to noon.
