Berrien Birding Club Events


Saturday, April 11, 10:00 a.m. Sarett Nature Center. Boardwalk trails, feeders and a diversity of habitats make Sarett a great choice for spring birding. And as an added bonus we’ll make a visit to the nearby Brown Sanctuary, where the marsh could harbor a nice mix of migrant waterfowl. Meet at the Interpretive Center.

Sat. April 18, 9:00 a.m. North Lake Park and Lincoln Township Park. This morning we’ll start by checking the Grand Mere area’s North Lake for waterfowl and other wetland species. Then we’ll make the short trip to  Lincoln Township Beach to bird along the entrance road. Meet at North Lake Township Park.

Sat. April 25, 9:00 a.m. Southeast Berrien Wetlands. This morning will take a  road trip in southeast Berrien  County to explore for birds at several wetland areas, such as Tobinabee Lake, the Weiser Road marsh and   Dayton Wet Prairie. We’ll be birding from roadside edges, so no waders needed! Meet at the truck stop/gas station on US-12, just west of the US-31 intersection west of Niles.

Tues. April 28, 8:30 a.m. New Buffalo Area Weekday Birding. This weekday birding outing will start at the New Buffalo Public Beach. After watching for lakeshore migrants we’ll visit Galien   River County Park to search for woodland and wetland migrants and wrap up at the Three Oaks Ponds if time allows. Meet at the New Buffalo Public Beach.


 For directions to any field trip location, please email Love Creek call (269) 471-2617 at least a day ahead of time.
