Birding

Lakeshore Birding

With its forests, dunes and Lake Michigan shoreline, Berrien County has long been one of Michigan's most popular bird watching locations. With this in mind and to promote recreational birding and bird conservation in Southwest Michigan, the Berrien County Parks sponsors the Berrien Birding Club. The club has a regular schedule of birding outings (PDF) to locations in and near Berrien County, as well as occasional meetings.

The Berrien Birding Club also sponsors two birding email lists - one for reporting recent bird sightings in Berrien County (BBCBirds) and the other for basically all things birds and birding (BBCChat). In addition, the club maintains a group page on Facebook.
