Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary

This jewel on Lake Michigan's shore boasts over 1500 feet of Lake Michigan Frontage on its 76 acres in Manistee County. Originally landscaped as an arboretum, many notable specimens have been preserved such as California Redwood, Ginko, and two Michigan Champion Trees, a Giant Sequoia and Sycamore. Also notable are bird species both nesting and migrating through the area. Bald Eagles, shorebirds, and migrating warblers can be seen on the many trails in the sanctuary. Because the sanctuary is situated in a major migratory flyway, the site is an ideal location for the Migration Celebration, one of several birding festivals that Michigan Audubon sponsors throughout the state each year.

Amenities: Parking. Maintained Trails. Beach Access. Restrooms. Facility Rentals. Onsite Manager. Guestroom with full private bath.
