We’re going to start the program year a little differently this fall by joining the Blaine Wetland Sanctuary Walking Tour, which will be led by Rebecca Haug and is hosted by the Rice Creek Watershed District.

The Blaine Wetland Sanctuary (BWS) is over 500 acres of wetland and upland. A boardwalk through sanctuary extends from a parking area along Lexington Avenue North through both wetland and upland habitats to connect the existing paved trail to East Lake Park.  Future plans include additional trails (exact locations are yet to be determined) and a nature center on Lexington Avenue North.

Tour Guide: Rebecca Haug from WSB. Rebecca worked on many projects within the Blaine Wetland Sanctuary while she was employed at the City of Blaine as their Water Resources Manager. She’ll be discussing various topics about the wetland and sharing her insights and knowledge with us as we walk along the boardwalk.
At: 11980 Lexington Ave NE Blaine, MN 55449. Parking lot available. Meet at entrance of boardwalk. Look for RCWD staff.
Bring: walking shoes, camera for pictures, bug spray, sunscreen, water, and questions for Rebecca
Topics: wetland restoration, water quality and flood control benefits, how wetlands are part of watershed management, and more!
FREE and open to everyone!
No registration required, just show up in the parking lot at the start of the trail.
If inclement weather occurs, event will be canceled and rescheduled for next year.
