Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary Fund

Organization Endowment

Seventy six acres and a 1/3 mile of high sandy bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan. Pristine nature trails through gently rolling forests, open fields and wetlands. Two Michigan Champion Trees.  All this and more will be protected and maintained under the goals of a Lake Buff Bird Sanctuary Endowment Fund.

Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary is known as a world-class viewing location for sea ducks; red-tailed, broad-winged, and rough-legged hawks as they migrate north in the spring.  Resident bald eagles and hawks are also seen and the woods and giant trees provide ideal feeding and nesting habitat for woodpeckers, wild turkeys and other bird species.  In late summer, large migrations of monarch butterflies stop at the Sanctuary on the journey to Mexico.  The Sanctuary is graced with an arboretum, a small gift shop and a center for conservation-oriented events.  

The Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary is located about 1 mile north on M-110 from the intersection of M-110 and US 31 in Manistee at 2890 Lakeshore Road. For more information, visit the Michigan Audubon's website at
