Wildlife Viewing

This beautiful Menominee River corridor offers excellent bald eagle viewing opportunities. Eagles are commonly seen all along the river, roosting in tall trees, fishing in the shallow water, or soaring high overhead. This stretch of river also boasts several eagle nests in tall trees right along the shoreline. (Do not disturb or harass nesting eagles). In addition to the eagles, ospreys, common loons, and waterfowl are frequent sightings on this exciting float. Piers Gorge is a very scenic, fast-moving stretch of the river near Norway, Michigan, and shoreline trails offer good viewing opportunities for eagles, osprey, and waterfowl. We Energies and International Paper own the shoreline at Piers Gorge and they encourage public use. We Energies’ canoe trail brochures and their Wilderness Shores pamphlets offer excellent, detailed maps for locating entry points by motor vehicle.
