Surface and difficulty: Flat, woodchips, dirt and gravel.
Because of its location along the Tittabawassee River corridor in Saginaw, this site is very attractive to many migrating songbirds. Birds that migrate along the river tend to congregate here to rest and feed before continuing their journeys. Mid-May is the peak of the spring warbler migration. Overall, nearly 150 different kinds of birds may be seen at Green Point during the year. More than 2 miles of hiking and cross-country trails explore the mixed hardwood and bottomland forest. There are 40 tree species found here and some of the individual trees are very old, providing good nesting habitat for squirrels, woodpeckers, and wood ducks.
Trails use may be limited due to seasonal flooding and wet conditions.
Portions of the National Wildlife Refuge and all of the State Game Area are open to public hunting. Contact the site managers for hunting seasons and regulations. Hunting is not permitted at Green Point Environmental Learning Center Trails.
