Augusta, Mich. Enjoy fall festivities at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary’s Fall Migration Celebration on Sunday, Nov. 4 from 1 – 4 p.m.

Fall is when waterfowl migrate to warmer waters, and the Sanctuary is an ideal place for them to rest on their journey. Hundreds of birds make a pit stop this time of year, and now is your time to see them. Last year, over 80 different bird species visited the Sanctuary in the month of November.

During the event learn how to identify the waterfowl floating on Wintergreen Lake and learn about migration through a storybook hike and games along the trail. Make your own pit stop to see waterfowl decoy carving and paint a craft to take home. Enjoy a cup of cider and a donut at the end of your walk among the fall colors.

The Sanctuary’s ¾ mile trail is the perfect setting to enjoy an autumn afternoon.

Admission for this event is free for members, and $5/adult, $4/student or senior, and $3/child (ages 2-17) for non-members.

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Avenue, one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu, email birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu, or call (269)671-2510.
