2017 Field Trip Registration

Welcome to the registration page for the 2017 Warblers on the Water events featuring field trips on the Beaver Island Birding Trail. Our community is eager to share our beautiful island, which hosts a rich array of migratory and resident nesting birds. Affectionately, Beaver Island is known as the Emerald Isle of American Birding.

We have arranged special field trips and presentations for Saturday, May 27th and Sunday, May 28th. The Beaver Island Community Center, conveniently located in the heart of the St. James harbor area, serves as our Trail Headquarters. We have invited a group of wonderful speakers and guides who will lead us on a weekend of discovery.

The weekend is intended to celebrate our island's natural resources and inspire others to become active conservation partners. Registration fees, which include field trips, presentations, and a Warblers on the Water T-shirt, are listed below. Please make your plans early. Additional travel information can be found on the Planning Your Visit tab. We look forward to seeing you soon!
