Summer in the Sanctuary!

New Program:

Birds & Botany in the Sanctuary


Join Friends of Roberts on a guided walk to discover birds and botany in the Sanctuary! Our guide will
be Wesley Nugteren, a professional naturalist and experienced teacher. Free and open to the public.


When:  Saturday, August 19 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday, September 13 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Where: Meet in the visitors shelter at the east entrance near the Peace Garden parking lot.
(Note: this parking lot is a pay lot; some people park on Lake Harriet Parkway as a free alternative.)

Who: People of all ages are welcome, including children accompanied by a parent or other caregiver. 

                 MPRB Capital Projects:                  New Signs, Fence, and Path

New signs were installed at all entrances.


Future signage in the visitors shelter will help to educate people about the importance of Roberts Bird Sanctuary to birds and other wildlife.






The fence is a "cue of care" to people that this natural area is valued and protected as a bird sanctuary. Some areas of the chain link fence have spaces to allow wildlife passage.



A new path was also created between the visitors shelter and Bossen Lane inside the new cedar rail fence on the east side.
