The Detroit Audubon Society, the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, the Detroit Recreation Department and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced plans to create a bird watching space in Gabriel Richard Park, along the Detroit RiverWalk. It is planned to open in 2015. Look forward to seeing it. Here is the location (courtesy of Google Maps).
UPDATE: August 1, 2015.
The birding spot has opened! The Free Press reports that the spot "features four wildlife spotting scopes and an interpretive panel identifying common birds that can be seen in the area."
