‘Hikes’ author presenting St. Croix River Valley’s best birding trails

Where’s the best place in the St Croix Valley to see eagles soar within a few feet of you? To hear songbirds sing a sweet soundtrack as you walk through the woods? To spot pheasants, turkeys and other game birds?

I’ll tell about those and several other locales during “Best Bird Trails of the St Croix River Valley,” an hour-long presentation on Thursday, May 14, at Chapter2Books in Hudson, Wis.

Each of the trails will be pulled from my bestselling book, Hittin’ the Trail: Day Hiking Trails of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, and most are within an hour’s drive of Hudson. Copies of the book and my other hiking titles are available for purchase at Chapter2Books.

The presentation starts at 7 p.m. Chapter2Books is located at 226 Locust St. in historic downtown Hudson.
