Michigan State University's W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is one of North America's pioneer wildlife conservation centers. Located 15 miles N of Kalamazoo and 12 miles NW of Battle Creek, the Sanctuary offers 180 acres of diverse habitats along beautiful, 40-acre Wintergreen Lake. Sanctuary visitors can walk two miles of trails (some wheelchair accessible) to see hundreds of waterfowl in their natural habitat - including Trumpeter Swans and a variety of duck species - as well as field and forest species. Birds of prey enclosures feature rehabilitated birds, including both rare and common raptors, such as a Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawks, Eastern Screech Owl and more. The Sanctuary also features Pollinator and Rain Gardens and a large picnic area. From March 1 until Thanksgiving, guests can visit our Resource Center, borrow guide books and binoculars, and purchase nature-related gift items and books. Grounds are open 365 days a year.
