Join us for a Fall Migration Celebration!

Celebrate fall waterfowl migration with a family-friendly day of activities at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary.  The Sanctuary’s Wintergreen Lake provides a safe haven for birds to fuel up as
they travel from breeding grounds in the far North to wintering grounds farther South.

  • Practice waterfowl ID along the lakeshore (use our experts for help!)
  • Join in family-friendly crafts and games to learn about birds and migration
  • Visit Willy McDonald in our auditorium and see some of his award-winning duck decoys on display
  • Purchase and build a bird-feeder kit with help from a volunteer
  • Enjoy cider and a treat along the way

**Special thanks to Willy and Diane for long time support of the Sanctuary!  Visit The Duck Blind website to learn more.
