Free

Join the Lake Superior Reserve, Hawk Ridge and the Friends of the Lake Superior Reserve for a free, bird-focused morning as part of an accessible birding series.

We welcome people of all ages and ability levels to attend this accessible birding event at Boy Scout Landing in Duluth. Observe waterfowl from the comfort of the landing with fellow bird enthusiasts and beginners alike. Light refreshments will be provided. Come and stay for the whole time, or meet up with or leave the group when you need.

We have 15 pairs of binoculars for people to use, a spotting scope, a wheelchair mount for the scope, and portable seating. ASL interpretation will be provided.

To register visit the event page here. Registration is encouraged but not required.

This event is part of a series. Further events are scheduled for August 2 at Barker’s Island in Superior, and October 14 at Hawk Ridge in Duluth.

These activities are designed with access in mind, but if you would like to request additional accommodations, please email Luciana.Ranelli@Wisc.Edu or call Luciana at 715-399-4085 at least 10 days before the event.

Boy Scout Landing has a paved landing, where we will be spending the morning. Optional other locations for bird viewing are a wooden dock without railings and a small beach accessible by a short path made of compacted soil with a brief but significant slope. Both optional locations are directly adjacent to the main gathering place.
