Kirtland’s Warbler Survey in June
A Kirtland’s Warbler Survey will be ongoing from June 6 through June 20, coordinated by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and local volunteers. To help survey the Yellow Dog Plains for this endangered bird, volunteers can call our office at (906) 345-9223. Surveying in Marquette County is done by vehicle, as well as walking through habitat areas. Maps of habitat areas are provided, and each morning of the survey, those participating will meet at the Triple AAA and Co. Rd. 510 intersection. This is a fantastic opportunity to view many species which make their home in the jackpine plains of the Yellow Dog River corridor. Bring binoculars, water, food, gear, and be willing to battle the insects. Please call ahead if planning to join us!
