Birds of the Wetlands

Note: This is a 4 hour cruise.

The Lake St. Clair wetlands provide food, shelter and nesting areas for many migratory birds. Some of these birds are species that are threatened or of special concern but they are thriving in these wetlands. Explore the St. Clair Flats as we search for these birds and learn about the research being done to help these populations of birds of the wetlands.

Research and Restoration

CommonTern_2966bwith babyA great number of scientific research and conservation efforts are taking place on Lake St. Clair and in its wetlands, ranging from fish to birds and invasive species to water quality. Join us on this cruise to observe Lake St. Clair marsh restoration, learn about the HEART lab (Huron to Erie Alliance for Research and Training) and its activities, and travel out to the Old South Channel Range Lights to see how restoration of the lighthouses has created an ideal nesting island for the threatened Common Tern.
