No "Evening at the Point" Tonight

Hello everyone. This is a quick note to let you know that the special event we had planned with the Shipwreck Museum tonight is postponed. We're not sure when it will be held, but I will post any updates.

Library program and Piping Plover presentation

Hello everyone! The program at the Whitefish Township Library went very well, despite some technical difficulties. 22 people learned about owls and owl research at Whitefish Point. Thank you to everyone who came out, and to Cindy for giving me the opportunity to speak at the library.

Don't forget, tomorrow is our special presentation "Piping Plovers at the Point" with Erin Roche. Piping Plovers have nested at the Point this summer for the first time in 23 years! We are very excited to have Erin speak about these endangered birds. The program is at 1:00pm in the Visitor Center (in the same building as the gift shop; across the parking lot from the Shipwreck Museum). We hope to see you there!

Hi everyone! We are in our third week of programs for the summer, and things have started out slowly. The weather has not been very cooperative and we have had to cancel several programs due to rain. I want to remind everyone about our upcoming program at the Whitefish Township Library. It will be at 7pm on Wednesday, July 22nd. I will be speaking about owls and the research we do at the Point. Afterwards, attendees are encouraged to come to the Point for our Night Hike program and owl banding. I hope to see you there!

Summer Programs at WPBO

Hello everyone! I am pleased to announce the schedule for our summer education programs at Whitefish Point Bird Observatory. We are hosting a number of programs, with topics ranging from birds to trees to rocks. Our popular owl program returns this summer as well.
Please see the schedule and descriptions above for more details.

We also have a number of special events lined up for the summer, including a Piping Plover presentation and a Butterfly Ramble! See the flyer below.

We hope to see you at our programs! Please do remember to bring bug and sun protection with you, and a jacket. Often times the Point is windier and cooler than surrounding areas. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at (906) 492-3596 or
