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
(http://www.michigandnr.com/ParksandTrails/Details.aspx?id=746&type=SPRK#overview), 
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.
