We recommend two great resources to help you plan your spring birding trips: 1) our Hot Spots page for lists of             numerous birding destinations and 2) the regional bird migration weekly forecasts on eBird's BirdCast

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.
