Bundle up and join the 2022 American Birding Association Young Birder of the Year Zita Roberston and her family at Wakonda State Park at 7 a.m. on the following Thursdays: Dec. 8, 15, 22 and 29, and Jan. 5 and 12. Zita will lead hikers on a 60-90 minute walk starting at the Agate Lake parking lot.

What started with a presentation at the local library has progressed to Zita organizing bird walks through the park where participants will not only see various species of birds, but also learn tips and tricks in identifying them.

Wakonda State Park is located 3 miles south of LaGrange on U.S. Highway 61. For more information, please call 573-655-2280. In the event of inclement weather, the walk will be canceled.
