HENNEPIN — The Wetlands Initiative invites the public to attend its Moonlit Mini-Blitz event 6-11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge in Hennepin.
At the 2018 BioBlitz, citizen scientists helped experts search for owls, bats, snakes, frogs and nocturnal insects at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge.
For this special “Mini-Blitz”, they’re scheduling only twilight and nighttime species surveys to give
people another chance to experience the refuge after dark.
No experience is needed. Hot dogs, veggie dogs and s’mores around the campfire will be provided.
Attendance for the event is limited.
