Grand Traverse Audubon Club

About

chickadee logo SmallWelcome!  The Grand Traverse Audubon Club members enjoy birding together, meeting for nature-oriented programs or field trips, and participating in service projects related to the environment.  We are concerned about the preservation of habitat for wildlife, and natural areas for the enjoyment of all residents.  We are a chapter of the Michigan Audubon Society.

Our meetings are usually the fourth Thursday of the month at the Boardman River Nature Center on Cass Road at 7:00 pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend!
