Berrien Birding Club
With its forests, dunes and Lake Michigan shoreline, Berrien County has long been one of Michigan’s most popular bird watching locations. With this in mind and to promote recreational birding and bird conservation in Southwest Michigan, the Berrien County Parks sponsors the Berrien Birding Club.
The club sponsors a regular schedule of group birding outings to locations in and near Berrien County. These outings are open to all - members and non-members - and birders of all levels are welcome. View the 2021 early spring bird outing schedule.
