  • The Mead Wildlife Education Team is pleased to welcome families, teachers and homeschoolers to the new series of monthly self-guided interpretive trail walks for 2021. Families can get outdoors and enjoy the seasons throughout the year, while exploring three habitats and inter-relationships with wildlife on the Mead property through these interpretive lessons. Trail information handouts and tools needed will be available in the brochure rack where the hike begins at the Visitor Front Kiosk Parking Lot.

    I Spy Something in the Sky -- It's Spring Migration Time!

    Come out and catch a glimpse of all the birds returning in spring. If you are lucky, you may be able to spot the largest and most majestic of the waterfowl returning to our wetlands. Mead has two of three swan species that stop at the wetlands. Trumpeter Swans tend to flock in pairs while Tundra Swans arrive in large flocks. The third swan is the non-native Mute Swan, which is rarely found at the Mead.
