Our major objectives are promoting an appreciation for and a better understanding of the plants and animals of northern Michigan, preserving our natural environment, and preventing any activities that may pose a threat to our natural ecology.
To meet our mission we offer educational programs and seasonal field trips
and provide members with the Meadowlark newsletter.
The Benzie Audubon Club is a tax-exempt charitable organization and a chapter of the Michigan Audubon Society. All of our meetings and field trips are open to the public without charge. Meetings are usually held the first Thursday of each odd month (January, March, etc.) at the Tribal Outpost at 7282 Hoadley Road in Benzonia (see map). Field trips are taken throughout the year.

Bring your park pass and meet at the parking lot next to the rest rooms at the west end of Lake Michigan Road. Carl Freeman (352-4739 will lead us on a search for fall migrants and late summer birds. Depending on the temperature and lake level, a wade or boat shuttle across the Platte River may be involved.
