More Waterfowl, Raptors and WInter Passerines

We will cover more birding basics, including bird behavior at Kensington Metropark (Metropark Pass is required for entrance to the park). We will continue our study of waterfowl and how to find and ID
winter passerines and raptors. Meet in the Nature Center parking lot.

Things to do:

  • Learn more about birds this spring and summer through volunteer work such as bird banding, nest-box monitoring, and conducting bird surveys.

  • Check out the new Polk Penguin Conservation Center at the Detroit Zoo.  It is home to 70 penguins.

Our Mission

  • Promote an interest in native wildlife including birds, other animals and plants and advocate the preservation of wildlife habitats in Michigan.
  • Provide on a local level, access to the natural world through activities and social media such as meetings, field trips, newsletter, website, facebook, twitter and blogs.
