Fathers get in free when accompanied by their families this Sunday. Get out and explore nature on 180-acres where wildlife find refuge.

Dad’s, outdoors, and a unique experience. A great way to celebrate Father’s Day is to take a trip to the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary. Our WCSG’s Travelin’ Together visits the 180-acre campus in Augusta where three miles of trails can be explored, including Wintergreen Lake.

Back in 1927, the sanctuary served as a refuge for the Canada Goose, and other migratory birds, and was an important part of Trumpeter Swan restoration efforts in Michigan in the 1980s.

Birding, nature photography or enjoying the outdoors will provide hours of exploration around the grounds. You’ll see all kinds of birds who call the sanctuary home including birds of prey, abundant waterfowl, gamebirds and songbirds.

The area is also an important part of research, providing researchers with a variety of natural and managed systems in which to conduct ecological research; including wetlands, lakes, ponds, forest, and crop-land.

No dogs are allowed except for certain locations. Fathers are free this Sunday when visiting with their families.

For more information, visit W.K. Kellogg.
