More About the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary

Open since 1927, this bird sanctuary was created by W.K. Kellogg as a refuge for the Canada Goose and other migratory birds. It also served as an important part of Trumpeter Swan restoration efforts in Michigan in the 1980s.

The Sanctuary spans 180-acres and is situated around 40-acre Wintergreen Lake.

Paved trails make the Sanctuary an easy walk or stroll with wagons or strollers, and a must-see among local zoos and animal sanctuaries.

Animals to Visit

  • Waterfowl: Trumpeter Swans, Canada Geese and a variety of ducks
  • Birds of Prey: Common raptors, including Bald Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, Eastern Screech Owls and others
  • Game Birds: pheasants, bobwhites and quail
