PIPESTONE - Calling all birders, citizen scientists, morning people, photography enthusiasts, and anyone just looking for things to do outside! Pipestone National Monument needs your help collecting data this spring.
On Saturday, May 8th, they're hosting a Migratory Bird Day BioBlitz from (brace yourself) 6:00 am - 8:00 am. Apparently, birds insist on getting an early start. The park will provide complimentary coffee and donuts for blitzers, and no birding experience is required!
All you have to do is photograph every bird you see in the Monument and upload it the iNaturalist page for this event. The iNaturalist community and park biologists can go in later and identify them. Please RSVP to 507-825-5464 ext. 214.
