Saving Birds Thru Habitat was established in Omena, Michigan in 2001 to help stem the decline of our migratory songbird population by teaching people of all ages how to protect, enhance and restore habitat for North American birds.
The center is adjacent to a 44-acre private conservation effort, Charter Sanctuary, which has hosted more than sixty nesting species. A hundred additional species use the property for foraging during migration. Saving Birds Thru Habitat has the exclusive use of this sanctuary for field trips.
Saving Birds offers docent led bird walks, regular newsletters, and a schedule of natural science events at the Center. They also certify properties for quality bird habitat, if they qualify, and they offer a highly acclaimed outreach presentation, which has been delivered across the country.
