Lion’s Den Birding Trip
Friday, April 21, 2023 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$25.00 – $30.00
Director of Education Tom Finley will lead you through Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve, one of the last stretches of undeveloped bluff land along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Over a half mile of 90- to 100-foot bluffs look out onto Lake Michigan, offering tremendous viewing opportunities. Being situated on the Lake Michigan shoreline, birds concentrate here during migration. Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve is also adjacent to a 44-acre wetland complex owned by United States Fish and Wildlife Service for enhancing populations of migratory birds and other wildlife. Stroll across bridges over the gorge and boardwalks through wetlands, or travel down the gorge stairways to walk along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
The field trip begins and ends at the Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve. Details will be emailed to registrants prior to the program.
