Minnesota Birding Weekends (MBW) is again offering another season of unique, modestly priced birding trips within Minnesota – our 37th year! After 36 years, we have had a total of more than 440 MBWeekends, 8,450 registrations, and a composite list of 367 species seen in Minnesota.


MBWeekend fees continue to be as modest as they always have been, and this season all will again be set at $20/day (e.g., a standard Saturday-Sunday MBWeekend is $40).


In addition to our selection of MBWeekends, a schedule of MBWeeks will resume in June 2022 (after over a year's hiatus due to Covid-19). Please visit the  MBWEEKS  page for further information.


ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FULLY VACCINATED

(BOOSTERS INCLUDED) BEFORE THE TIME

OF THE MBW ARE ELIGIBLE TO REGISTER.


THOSE ATTENDING THESE MBWs WILL FOLLOW CDC AND STATE GUIDELINES

IN EFFECT AT THE TIME FOR FACE MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING.


PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME MBWEEKENDS MAY HAVE TO BE CANCELED

DEPENDING ON THE LEVEL OF THE COVID PANDEMIC AT THE TIME.
