UWGB’s natural area, the Point au Sable Nature Preserve, is home to more than 200 bird species and a migration stopover point for thousands of birds in spring and fall. A Cofrin Research grant provided a rich opportunity to create a portrait of the daily interplay between water, land, sky, and wildlife, particularly waterfowl.
This collection of 134 images taken from May 15-August 1, 2020, offers a glimpse into this understated natural area and seeks to underscore the importance of water conservation and land preservation as a means to provide stop-over points for bird migrations and safe refuge for year-round inhabitants.
This project was supported by The Cofrin Arboretum Endowment created by the families of John P and David A Cofrin.
