DirectionsHead north on M-129. Turn right (east) onto 22 Mile Road. 0.5 miles along this road and you will reach the acquisition land which is on the right (south) side of the road. There is a small pull off near the brown informational sign that allows for 1-2 cars to park. You can scan the fields from here or can walk through the fields, although no formal trails exist.
Birding InformationA large parcel added to the Munuscong State Wildlife Management Area, this area is relatively un-birded but has great potential. Le Conte’s Sparrow, Sedge Wren, Alder Flycatcher, Bobolink and Savannah Sparrow are all birds that can be seen here. Northern Harrier and American Kestrels are additional species that can be found here. While there are no trails through this area, once can scan for birds from the small pull off that exists here, or one can travel through the grasslands on foot with a spirit for adventure.

Quote of the day
“Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away with them. Now we face the question whether a still higher 'standard of living' is worth its cost in things natural, wild and free. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than television.” ― Aldo Leopold
