Belle Isle Birding

Nature Programs on Belle Isle

In spring, summer, and fall, we host periodic nature programs on Belle Isle  in partnership with the Belle Isle Nature Center! These family-friendly, free programs range in topic from current environmental issues, natural history, birding trips, bird safe windows, dark skies educational programs or just a nice walk on the island.
