The Saginaw Bay Area (SBA) is comprised of seven counties surrounding and near to the Saginaw Bay: Iosco; Arenac; Bay; Midland; Saginaw; Tuscola, and Huron. The Saginaw Bay watershed is the largest contiguous freshwater coastal wetland system in the United States. This is a critical migratory stopover for over 250 bird species of which over 200 species remain to establish nesting territories in this habitat rich and diverse region.
We hope that you'll continue to utilize this valuable natural resource right in our midst. If you've never visited, take the time to experience the Saginaw Bay Area's nature/birding opportunities via this website and the newly established Saginaw Bay Birding Trail!
