Birds of Whitefish Dunes

274 days old

Time: 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Activities: Birding, Hike, Outdoor activity, Walk
Location: Whitefish Dunes SP

A short presentation introduces you to birds and birding. Learn what two items are essential to any birder, and how to use them to identify birds. Examine the diverse habitats of the Park, and what clues habitat can give you to identify birds. Take a leisurely walk into the Park to look for birds, and try out what you have learned. Sarah & Bill Krouse are amateur ornithologists (birders) who have been inspired to share nature by legendary environmentalists like Roy & Charlotte Lukes. Whitefish Dunes is so special to them that they had their wedding reception here. Meet at the Nature Center in the Park. Park sticker required. Bring binoculars if you have them.
