Minnesota Point is the longest freshwater sandbar in the world. It’s a fascinating world of sand dune habitat as well as old growth Pine Forest with large Red and White Pine 120-200 years old. Minnesota Point is also an Important Bird Area particularly during migration- but also home to a number of interesting summer breeding residents.
Meet us at the end of the road on Park Point at the trailhead at the back of the Sky Harbor Airport for this SNA exploration. Note: one of the native residents of the sand dune environment is poison ivy, so plan to dress accordingly with close toed shoes. Free.
