ATTENTION: To prevent the spread of COVID-19 the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary will be closing the Resource Center, public restrooms and all buildings until further notice starting March 19, 2020. The grounds will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. to hike our trails, offering space to maintain the CDC recommended six foot social distancing. If you are not a member, please use the green honesty admission box (cash only). We will not be selling corn to feed the waterfowl to limit the risk of transmission. To keep our flock safe, please do NOT bring in your own waterfowl feed, bread, etc. Sanctuary staff will be on site every day caring for the birds.
