Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge | Bloomington, MN

Join Audubon + Canon at the National Wildlife Refuge's Bloomington Education and Visitor Center for a unique event that brings birds and photography together in a whole new way.

Register today for Birds in Focus, a free guided bird walk led by an Audubon naturalist and a Canon photography pro as you try out the latest and greatest cameras, lenses, and binoculars available. Plus, you can get inspired by the Audubon Photography Awards exhibit, learn photo tips and tricks from Best Buy camera experts, and get up close and personal with a spectacular live bird demonstration by the Raptors of Minnesota program.

During your visit to the Refuge, you can explore a variety of trails on self-guided hikes within the 14,000 acres of land dedicated to wildlife. You can also go fishing in the Minnesota River that cuts through the grounds or search for the more than 200 bird species that make the Refuge their home year-round. Access to the Refuge is free of charge.
