2014 will mark the introduction of the Beaver Island Birding Trail. This significant population of avifauna makes the Island the perfect place for a virtual birding trail. Inspired by the success of the Sleeping Bear Birding Trail, SBBT partner Saving Birds Thru Habitat has begun working with Island residents on the development of the Beaver Island Birding Trail website. The planning group expects to launch the trail website after the first of the year. A companion map of the trail will be printed for island visitors noting the 33 locations identified as quality birding sites. We look forward to being able to walk the trails there with the guidance of local experts and knowledge!
