Leelanau Conservancy

This hike is a partnership hike with Saving Birds Thru Habitat. Observe migrating warblers and other birds who will be gleaning newly emerging insects to fuel their flight across Lake Michigan or feed their already hatched hungry youngsters. Wildflowers will be blooming in profusion to entice pollinators while Lake Michigan waters will be hosting new generations of fish attracting hungry shore birds. Join SBTH Director Kay Charter along with docents Ann McInnis and birders Ed and Linda Ketterer…and bring binoculars. During our hike we will also wander over to the Leelanau State Park as well as an adjacent private property protected by a conservation easement. If you plan to attend please call 231 256-9665 or send us an email at [email protected] so we may provide you with the best experience possible. Please note–no dogs on docent-led hikes, which last about 2 hours. Visit our website to learn about all upcoming hikes, workbees, and events.
