There's nothing like the great outdoors.
It's a sentiment that goes by the wayside in the lull between autumn and when there's enough snow on the slopes to justify a trip up to the ski hill.
If a breath of fresh air is what you need, drop by the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve at 5301 N. Maple Grove Road for a morning of bird watching. Bring your own binoculars, or if you don't own a pair, there will be specs available to borrow. Field guides for bird identification will also be available.
The event is FREE and begins at 9 a.m.
