Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, Forest Beach Migratory Preserve offers birders a fantastic opportunity to see an incredible diversity of birds. It is strategically located to enable great views of migrating raptors, and we will be visiting it at one of the busiest times of raptor migration. Senior Ecologist, Don Quintenz, and Adult Programs Coordinator, Michelle Allison, will assist participants in finding and identifying birds.
The field trip begins and ends at Forest Beach Migratory Preserve. Restrooms are not available at this time. In order to maintain social distancing, you will need to provide your own transportation to and from the park. Further details and directions will be emailed to registered participants prior to the trip.
To get a sense of what our local field trips are like, see this post about our recent tour of Lake Park on A Wealth of Nature.
This program will take place entirely outdoors. We will practice social distancing when we are able to, but because of the nature of small-group programming, it will not always be possible. For the health and safety of all, participants must wear a mask when you are within six feet of others. Please do not attend if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus.
