Grassland Nesting Bird Hike

June 23 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Gary Siegrist, a Legacy volunteer and naturalist, will help you identify the grassland birds of Watkins Lake during their nesting season. Grassland birds observed at Watkins Lake include: Henslow’s Sparrow (endangered in MI), Grasshopper Sparrow and Dickcissel (species of special concern, meaning they are rare or declining in number), Bobolink, and Northern Mockingbird. Grasslands are no longer a common habitat in our area and many birds depend on it, so Legacy is proud to have helped in protecting this land forever. For more information or to register, email rsvp@legacylandconservancy.org or call 734-302-5263. Park at the main parking lot off of Arnold Road.
