About the event
The Mink River Estuary is a dynamic coastal wetland and forest landscape that provides habitat for a number of important
plants and animals including Great Lakes fish, many species of migratory and breeding birds, and mammals representative of Wisconsin’s mixed conifer hardwood forests. This 2.5-mile, moderate loop hike will meander through the upland and lowland forests surrounding the east side of the Mink River Estuary with brief views of the marsh and springs that feed the river. We’ll look for birds and learn about TNC’s work to protect and restore these forests. Suitable for ages 16 and up.
