Paddlers interested in the history of the Great Lakes will enjoy a trip to the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, including the museum itself, the beautifully restored lightkeeper’s house, and a movie about the raising of the ship’s bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald, which is in the museum. Whitefish Point is a great place to watch the spring raptor migration (as is Duluth for the fall migration) as they move northward and around Lake Superior. In addition it is one of the few remaining places on the Great Lakes where the piping plover returns each year to nest. Once down to a global population of twelve nesting pairs after being hunted to near extinction, the plover has made a partial comeback on the Atlantic Coast, where it is a threatened species, but remains endangered in the Great Lakes region with only twenty-six breeding pairs. Habitat destruction and the extreme vulnerability of chicks during nesting season to foot traffic, ATVs, and other animals, such as raccoons, have made it hard for the plover to thrive here.
