The Tawas Point Migration 2018 program offers a combination of high-quality guided birding opportunities for small groups coupled with indoor educational sessions designed for birders of all ages.
Field trips: include trails at Tawas Point State Park and car-pool destinations in Iosco County. Participants can expect to see Whip-poor-wills, Redheaded Woodpeckers, Trumpeter Swans and migrating warblers. Some field trips focus on the unique Kirtland’s Warbler habitat.
The educational program: includes hands-on nature activities for kids as well as the very popular hour-long live birds show “The Wonder of Raptors.” More sessions include creating bird and butterfly gardens using native plants, (with plants on sale), a program about Peregrine Falcons, and an opportunity to learn about bird songs.
The registration fee is $15.00 per adult for activities May 17 -19. Adults attending only the educational program on May 19 may register at the door for $5.00. Birders under 17 participate for free when accompanied by a paying adult. You may register online for the full event.
