We are pleased to offer not one, but TWO, Black Tern Discovery Cruises this year to view the largest nesting Black Tern Colony in Michigan! Ride along on a comfortable and scenic cruise while you enjoy refreshments, lunch, and presentations about St. Clair Flats ecology and the Black Tern Monitoring Project.

We will maintain a respectful distance from the nests, so as not to disturb the breeding colony, but will still have excellent views. Detroit Audubon is happy to provide binoculars (for an even closer look!).

Last year, we had the pleasure of meeting up with our Research Coordinator in the research boat, who brought aboard a recently banded adult Black Tern for all to see prior to release (see below for photos by Board Member, Sara Cole)! We hope to coordinate with our research boat again this year! 

Tickets are $125 per person. All proceeds will directly support Black Tern Research.

Can’t join us on the Cruise?
