Hammond Lakefront Park and Bird Sanctuary

A truly unexpected find. A small, 600-meter track nestled in the middle of an industrial area may not seem worth exploring, but this one is! As you crisscross the site on a narrow footpath, keep your eyes open for neotropical bird species that use this small space as a critical stopover during migrations. A rough trail runs the length of the site, allowing you to scan the woods and grassy areas for birds.
