If you are naturalist by nature ,this is a good place to observe birds of prey ,especially in the fall and spring when they are migrating.There is usually a naturalist group there and most people will readily answer questions for you

Highly recommend attending one of their weekend events, great experience for kids & adults alike. Also a very peaceful place to go for a peaceful, contemplative stroll to get away from the hubbub of city life.

Hawk Cliff is a quiet place to take a walk and enjoy the view of the lake. Usually lots of birds to photograph

This is one of many locations along the shores of Lake Erie to view (and count--if so inclined) migratory hawks. Hawks tend to "kettle" on the up drafts when winds blow in from the Lake from the southwest. Kettleing can be spectacular. The area itself...More

Need a place to just breath and relax for awhile? A place that has a fantastic view of Lake Erie? A quiet place, except for the occasional squawk, screech, tweet or buzz from the birds and insects that also enjoy this space. Frequented by birders...More
