This adventure will see you join Captain Zach & 2 other guides as we drive around the property to different wetland cells where we can see a plethora of birds & wildlife. Other target species include the White Pelican, American Avocet, Roseate Spoonbills, and we might get lucky & view a rare Barn Owl or two that like to roost in the nest boxes placed around the property!

We will meet in the grass lot of the DNR check station at the gate to Bear Island at 8am. Captain Zach will be standing in the parking lot to greet you & check you in upon arrival. We recommend using restrooms before you arrive as there are no restrooms available where we’ll be birding. After everyone checks in, we’ll load up and caravan to various sites on the property that are known hotspots for certain species. You’re welcome to bring cameras and take pictures. After checking all of the pre-determined hotspots (~3-4hrs later), we’ll head back to the parking area and drop you off at your vehicles to head home.
Guests who arrive late will be left behind and unable to receive a refund.
In the unlikely event of inclement weather, we may cancel or postpone the trip the day prior to departure and will call the number you provided on your reservation to let you know. If a trip is cancelled before we embark we will try to reschedule your trip for a later date or offer you a full refund. We can't control the weather, but we can make sure you get the best experience possible.
We require 5 DAYS NOTICE to cancel your reservation and receive a full refund. If you cancel within the 5 day period, you will not be refunded.
All cancellations must be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 732-996-4732
