    This is a special place for The Harrison Family and Friends. The Lookout Platform is named for our dear son David Harrison. The memorial platform has a wonderful vista of the “Aux Bec Seis” Betsie River, the Elberta Marsh and Betsie Bay, the drowned river mouth of the Betsie River.

    The Benzie Audubon Club David Harrison Memorial Lookout and the adjacent Betsie Valley Trail provide superb vantage points for checking out the Betsie River delta and marsh area. In addition to migrating shorebirds and waterfowl, various wading birds and passerines are found here, including
    Sandhill Cranes, American Bitterns, Sedge Wrens and Willow Flycatchers.

    Park at the Betsie Valley Trailhead off of M-22 near Elberta or by the big anchor across the road and enjoy the view. Don Harrison UpNorth Memories
