Black Tern Discovery Cruise

Join us for a fundraiser at the largest remaining Black Tern Colony in Michigan. Tickets now available for the 2019 cruise!

Our always-popular Black Tern Discovery Cruise is back again for 2019! Ride along on a comfortable and scenic cruise while you enjoy refreshments, a delicious lunch, and presentations about St. Clair Flats ecology and the Black Tern Monitoring Project. This event is a fundraiser for Detroit Audubon, with all proceeds going to support the conservation and education work we do here in Southeast Michigan!

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. This event is open to adults of all ages and children ages 6 and up (content and activities are geared towards adults).
