Upcoming MI Birds programs around the state

While it might feel like summer has just started heating up, fall is just around the corner. Join MI Birds on a guided bird walk to catch a glimpse of Michigan’s avian migration in action, or for a stewardship day to help keep birds safe. Michigan lies at the intersection of two migratory pathways, bringing more than 360 species of birds through the state each fall!

Saturday, Sept. 21, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Join MI Birds, the DNR and Michigan United Conservation Clubs this National Clean-Up Day to help remove trash from this watershed and Important Bird Area. This year’s World Migratory Bird Day theme was to “be the solution to plastics pollution,” and we need your help to keep our marsh birds, water birds and waterfowl safe. Knee-high boots recommended, but not required. Supplies and snacks provided.
