The open farm fields of Michigan’s Thumb area resemble the arctic summer habitats of Snowy Owls. During the past few winters, several owls have been spotted. Travel by CNC 15-passenger van with experienced birders and Interpretive Naturalists Michelle Fournier and Jeanne Henderson in search of Snowy Owls. We may also see Rough-legged hawks, Horned Larks, Snow Buntings or American Tree Sparrows. Bring a lunch, binoculars, field guide and clothes for the weather. We will have spotting scopes and binoculars to share. Most time will be spent driving or standing outside the van, but we’ll also include a few short walks. 

Ages: 18 and up
