Please join us for a visit to Watkins Lake, the newest Michigan state park.

Jackson Audubon’s tour  be to Watkins Lake State Park and County Preserve
east of Brooklyn.  Watkins Lake typically has large numbers of waterfowl during migration.  In past years, tours have seen tundra, greater white-fronted, snow, Ross's, and cackling geese among the Canadas and bald and golden (once) eagles.  The lake is windier than your yard, so wear an extra layer and a hat.  Please arrive in time for a carpool to leave promptly at 9 a.m. from the east side (nearest Summit Township’s offices) of the Polly’s Country Market parking lot, 2119 Ferguson Road, Jackson (42.198482, -84.439890).  if you would rather drive separately, meet the group on Arnold Road at the south end of the lake, 1,000 feet north of Horning Road (42.121215, -84.137901).

Site information is available at the Michigan DNR webpage.
