Surrounded by three Great Lakes, Michigan, Superior and Huron, the Hiawatha National Forest is host to a wide range of bird habitats. The Kirtland's warbler, sharp-tailed grouse, boreal chickadee, sandhill crane, pileated woodpecker, peregrine falcon and Canada and Blackburnian warblers are just some types that call the Hiawatha National Forest home for a period of time. The Hiawatha is "the only National Forest to host six lighthouses, five of which maintain full federal ownership." 300 miles of snowmobile trails are also available.
Founded in 1903, the 17,000 square foot Escanaba Public Library contains a collection of more than 70,000 items.
Located within Escanaba's 120-acre Ludington Park complex on the west shore of Green Bay's Little Bay de Noc, the Escanaba Municipal Marina features more than 160 boat slips, docks and moorings.
Built by the National Lighthouse Service, the Sand Point Lighthouse served mariners from 1868 until 1939. "One of the oldest and most historic buildings in the area," the Sand Point Lighthouse houses the Delta County Historical Society's archives, which include a copy of the original 1867 plan of the building.
