Addition to Detroit River refuge

Part of 1,600-acre Lake Erie Metropark in Michigan will transfer to Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge. The transfer will encompass about 780 acres of wetlands and upland habitats.

According to monroenews.com,
The park is one of the top birdwatching sites in the Great Lakes and one of the best locations in North America to watch hawks. It also is well recognized for its Marshlands Museum and Nature Center, a 200-acre nature study area, and its annual Hawkfest in September that attracts thousands of birders and guests.
Hawkfest is scheduled for Sept. 15-16 this year.

I've been here! This is where my in-laws took Bry and I when we visited a couple of summers ago. It had beautiful trails, and on one of the nights we were there, the Detroit Symphony had their outdoor concert series going. I loved this place!
