It’s Winterfest at the Sherburne NWR

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge invites you to attend their annual Winterfest celebration on Saturday, February 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This FREE family event offers an exciting day of outdoor activities celebrating winter and focusing on how both wildlife and people manage to thrive in Minnesota’s months of snow and cold temperatures.

Outdoor activities include a horse-drawn sleigh side, snowshoeing, scavenger hunt and bonfire. Visit exhibits on wildlife adaptations for cold, tracking, invasive earthworms, winter survival, bird feeding and the Minnesota Junior Duck Stamp Program. Live owls will be on display and educators from the Audubon Center of the Northwoods will answer your questions about these unique birds. Hot chocolate, cider, coffee and cookies will be available for purchase all day in the Main Tent and a brat and hot dog lunch will be served from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Friends of Sherburne gift shop will have clothing, hats, books, cards and jewelry, as well as new refuge lapel pins and patches. They will also hold a silent auction fund-raiser with many unique items, to help support refuge projects and programs.

Winterfest celebrates the 109th Anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Sherburne is one of 555 national wildlife refuges that span 150 million acres across the United States and its territories. Participants can enjoy a free piece of anniversary cake to be served at 12:30 p.m.

All activities will be held at the event site south of the old school house located on Sherburne County Road 9, five miles west of Highway 169.
