176 bird species
The Nicolet National Forest Bird Survey is the longest running volunteer bird monitoring program in a U.S. national forest. The Nicolet National Forest encompasses 360,000 hectares of mixed hardwood-conifer forests, lowland swamps, glacial lakes, and wetlands in northeastern Wisconsin. It comprises the eastern portion of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, with headquarters in Rhinelander and Park Falls, Wisconsin. The Bird Survey takes place each year during the second weekend in June. Everyone with an interest in birds and a desire for adventure is invited to participate in the Bird Survey.

This year’s Nicolet National Forest Bird Survey will be held on the weekend of June 5-7 in the Lakewood-Laona (southern Nicolet) District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Headquarters will be at our usual site, the LeFeber Northwoods Camp on Hardwood Lake, approximately 9 miles northwest of Wabeno.
