What’s a better combination than a party bus, a brewery, and a hot-spot for hawk watching? For this full day program we’ll ride in style on “Dan’s Ultra Party Bus” to Lake Erie Metropark for some of the hottest hawk-viewing in the state. On the way over we’ll have mimosas and a light breakfast while we watch clips of “Hawks on the Wing” and learn hawk ID tips from creator Josh Haas. During the day, enjoy a birding and photography from Josh and KNC Staff as we visit the Detroit River; a corridor for the passage of migratory birds. On our ride home we’ll stop at Fort Street Brewery for dinner and beer tasting. This event is geared for adults 21 & up and all proceeds go to support the care of KNC’s amazing Birds of Prey. Please bring a bag lunch and plan to cover your dinner and drinks at the brewery. Bring a pair of binoculars or borrow a pair of ours! Meet: I-94 Park ‘n Ride, 2500 Vincent Ave, Portage, MI 49024
