The St. Marys River waterway, near Fort St. Joseph is important habitat for more than 100 species of waterfowl, colonial waterbirds, shorebirds, perching birds and raptors. Federally recognized as a bird sanctuary, the Fort St. Joseph wetlands are almost as irresistible for birders as they are for the birds who stop by on their way north or south or call this place home. Bring your life list and start spotting!

A system of trails of varying lengths leads through the area to the nearby shores of Lake Huron, making it easy to navigate the area. Spend an afternoon with your camera, capturing shots of a stunning variety of birds in beautiful wooded and wetland settings.
