Ruins of the Ustick Cottage on Gull (Bellow) Island

On June 5th we will sail to Gull Island in Grand Traverse Bay to see the nesting colonies of herring gulls, double crested cormorants, and Caspian terns.  A guest faculty of experts will share their knowledge of these birds, the island and the fascinating history of attempted human settlement.  For more information and booking, go to the Leelanau BirdFest website or call the Leelanau Chamber of Commerce at 231-271-9895.
