Learn about nature. Hike our trails. Paddle Spearhead Lake. Enjoy the solitude...
The mission of the Mississippi Headwaters Audubon Society is to foster personal connections to and stewardship of our natural world.
What we do...
Folks have been coming out to enjoy the wonderful signs of the seasons. Bring your camera, binoculars, field guides, and curiosity. Handled responsibly, open space and wildlife observation might be just the balm you need.
Masks are required for not-fully-vaccinated people when you encounter others on the trail or if you are hiking with people other than your household members. Click here to see our MHAS Covid Preparedness Plan.
MHAS ANNUAL MEMBERS CELEBRATION! SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2
Come join us at the Neilson Spearhead Center and Preserve* (NSC) for guided hikes, learn about MHAS activities, share a free meal, and hear from local wildlife photographer, Brent Cizek.
Brent took the famous picture of 'Mama Merganser' on Lake Bemidji with 56 babies trailing behind her which received media attention around the nation. He also was just awarded 'Honorable Mention' for his video of a Great Grey Owl in the National Audubon 2021 Photography Competition. Brent will be talking to us about how he goes about taking these remarkable pictures.
