Grassland Birds Workshop

Grassland birds are one of the many wildlife wonders of the prairie and oak savannah landscapes. Bobolinks, Meadowlarks, Grasshopper Sparrows, Red-headed Woodpeckers and many more are common sights at Mounds View Grassland (MVG).  

Unfortunately, these sights are becoming more and more rare as bird populations dwindle globally. Since 1970, the number of grassland birds in North America has decreased by over fifty percent. Much of this is due to habitat loss, so we are lucky to have restoration efforts like MVG to provide a home to these wonderful birds.

Join us for a workshop at MVG where we will observe these wonderful birds in the wild and hear from experts discussing their habitat, behavior, and the challenges they face.
