Approaching this point you will be going past "Dewey Hill" on the north bank of the Grand River where if you look up you should see an American Flag. Right past this dune is a river access to Kitchell Lidquist Dunes.

Located about 3 miles northwest of Grand Haven, this 52-acre preserve is owned and operated by The Nature Conservancy. It encloses typical natural communities from open dunes to shrub land to oak-maple forest. Unusual or rare plants here include sand cherries and Pitcher's thistle.

Many different kinds of birds use this area. There is an excellent probability of viewing large numbers of hawks during their fall migration in September and October. Bald eagles may be seen during winter months. Watch for hawks on days when there is an east wind blowing. Also there is an excellent chance of seeing ring-billed gulls, herring gulls, great blue herons, and other water birds. Warblers, woodpeckers, sparrows, swallows, and many other songbirds can be seen at various times from spring through fall.
Dawn and dusk provide the best viewing opportunities. Several kinds of reptiles including hognose and blue racer snakes may be seen during summer.
