Gull Harbor: This protected area is along Gull Harbor Drive east of the Whiskey Point Lighthouse. Most of the habitat is shoreline, cedar shrub, and marshy ponds, but there are a few wooded areas behind the open areas. This is an excellent site to observe waterfowl, wading birds, shorebirds, and raptors. The area is used extensively by migrating songbirds in the spring and fall. During the summer months northern water snakes are active in and around the ponds. These snakes are nonvenomous and should not be disturbed.
St. James Campground: This popular campground is located in a mixed hardwoods/pines forest at the top of a high bluff overlooking Garden Island. A paved trail connects the campground to the Donegal Bay Bike Trail which leads back toward town. The woods contain both resident and migrant songbirds and the bluff is an excellent location to look for raptors, including Bald Eagles that nest on the surrounding islands and come to Beaver Island to forage.
