Michigan Audubon's largest bird sanctuary is located in Jackson County bordering the Waterloo Recreation Area. At 1,008 acres, it is known to attract thousands of migrating Sandhill Cranes every fall. The diversity of animal and plant life includes over 270 plant species and 200 species of birds. Benches on a hill overlooking Mud Lake Marsh provide an ideal location for viewing large numbers of cranes in October and early November. A restored wetland and grassland demonstration area at the west side of the sanctuary is accessed from Wooster Road. Public access to the marsh is restricted.

What to see: Sandhill Crane, Trumpeter Swan, Eastern Bluebird, Wood Thrush, Northern Flicker, Marsh Wren, Tree Swallow, Fox Sparrow, migrating warblers, and waterfowl.
