Joan Kellenberg: Michigan’s Remarkable Efforts to Save the Endangered Great Lakes Piping Plover

February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Washtenaw Audubon Society and the Sierra Club Huron Valley Group have partnered to bring you this special presentation. After discovering the Great Lakes Piping Plover Recovery Team at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in 2020, Joan joined them as a volunteer in 2021. She enjoys traveling north to spend hours on the beach educating park visitors about piping plovers and doing safety checks on nesting adults and new chicks. Last summer, she went to North Manitou Island, the largest Great Lakes piping plover breeding area, to track a new plover pair.

Joan lives in Ann Arbor and is a public health professional by training. She was an informal bird enthusiast until she discovered the Great Lakes piping plover. Now her family says it has become an obsession. She hopes to convince others to join the piping plover recovery effort!
