Spring at Pelican Lake
As the ice goes out on Pelican Lake and surrounding creeks and rivers, the trees and flowers begin to bud and blue skies bring warmth and rebirth to the natural beauty that surrounds Orr.
The birding opportunities are unequalled anywhere as the spring migration brings home our summer feathered residents along with those passing through to breeding grounds farther north. Come and remember what it is like to hear nature’s symphony without all of the big city noises.
Experience the joy of the season as the local wildlife introduces its young to the world. Spring is a wonderful time to take a walk in the woods to listen, watch and learn. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for magnificent antlers that have been shed over the winter. Late spring is also the beginning of fishing season when waters are teeming with hungry fish. Check with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for exact fishing season opening dates. Get away from the hustle of everyday life and escape to Orr/Pelican Lake.
