Shake off the winter chill and celebrate the reopening of the trails at the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary with an all-day nature-filled extravaganza!

This free, family friendly event has something for everyone, all focused on exploring the great outdoors! There will be guided Bird Hikes as well as guided Natural History hikes along Two Pecan Trail.
