Info Session: Photograpy & Wildlife Observation Blinds
Tuesday, 25 February 2014, 6:00pm - 6:45pm

Photography and Wildlife Observation Blind Information Session


Kellogg Bird Sanctuary Auditorium

No fee for this Information Session

Getting close to nature is one of many people’s favorite parts of visiting the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary.  But many species that frequent the sanctuary prefer to have a bit more privacy.  Species, such as Wood Ducks, are more secretive and would be easier to observe from the seclusion of an observation blind.

Photographers frequent the Sanctuary because of the abundant subject matter but are often frustrated by fencing and other obstructions.  A low profile blind specifically designed for waterfowl shots would be ideal on the shore of Wintergreen Lake.

We need your input!  Please join us to brainstorm the placement and design of two observation blinds planned for the Sanctuary property.

This project made possible through the generosity of the Wood family.  The Sanctuary’s photography and wildlife viewing blinds will be built in memory of Dr. Jack Wood.  Dr. Jack Wood was professor emeritus of biological sciences at Western Michigan University.  But Jack completed his degrees at Michigan State University and called Hickory Corners home.  Several research projects of Jack’s were conducted at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary and across Kellogg Biological Station including studies on Canada Goose behavior.
