Since 1927, the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary has been a home for wildlife and a place for research, education and outreach. On the Historical Walking Tour, we welcome you to experience how the Sanctuary has changed over time. The tour is located along the main 3/4 mile paved path and a brochure maps six marked locations along the way that highlight aspects of our rich history.
Take this trail guide on the 1 mile Bluebird Trail. There are 5 points along the trail that correlate to different sections of the guide and share information on Eastern Bluebirds, nest box residents, backyard habitat, native plants, and monitoring nest boxes. This is a great resource if you are interested in birds that use nest boxes!
