Nayanquing Point State Wildlife Area is located three miles north of Linwood, Michigan. Situated on the western shore of Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay, it consists of 1,505 acres. It is unique in that the harvest of dabbling and diving ducks along with Canada geese is possible. Nayanquing Point's viewing tower provides premier opportunities to witness numerous bird species during their migration. Despite its small size tens of thousands of ducks, swans, geese, wading birds, shorebirds, raptors and songbirds migrate through Nayanquing Point each fall and spring.
