Kate Palmer Wildlife Sanctuary

1960 O'Brien Road,
Jackson, MI 49201
Although bisected by a busy country road, this 53-acre Michigan Audubon sanctuary in Jackson County is home to a mature hardwood forest that nestles Sandstone Creek. Biotic communities include upland and lowland deciduous woods, a grove of large eastern white pines, and a marsh with natural springs that flow into Sandstone Creek. This is one of the richest woodlands in Jackson County for spring wildflowers. A woodland hiking trail and boardwalk lead visitors safely through blankets of trillium in the spring.
What to see: Red-bellied, Downy, Hairy, and Pileated Woodpecker; Eastern Wood-Pewee, Yellow-throated Vireo, Gray Catbird, Cedar Waxwing, migrating warblers.
