Michigan Audubon Sanctuary with assortment of wetland, scrub/shrub, woodland, and upland grassland habitats.

Ornithological Summary

Supports a small but sustained population of nesting Henslow's Sparrows. Wetland species are well-represented, as well as some Carolinian forest species.

Conservation Issues

Woody encroachment is a potential threat, but continued proper management (currently MDNR LIP program) would thwart this threat.
