Tips for Birding

The heavily wooded 265-acre cemetery can be fantastic for songbirds in spring and fall migration. Clevelanders have been birding the cemetery heavily for decades and the total species list is impressive. Nearly 200 species have been documented, which includes at least 32 species of warblers and all of the expected songbird migrants.

Lake View Cemetery is a stop on the Lake Erie Birding Trail.

About this Location

Lake View Cemetery, located in the vibrant University Circle area, was organized in 1869. We are considered “Cleveland’s Outdoor Museum and Arboretum.” It’s Cleveland’s historical, horticultural, architectural, sculptural, and geological gem. The magnificent collection of trees, shrubs, and plants make for an exceptional green space in an urban area. This “green space” provides a wonderful refuge for birds and small animals, as well as a showplace of extraordinary architectural and sculptural treasures.
