About Cleveland Lakefront Important Bird Area

This IBA spans Lake Erie near-shore waters and shoreline from Avon Lake on the west to Euclid on the east-includes Avon Lake Power Plant, dredge-spoil impoundments, airport grassland, Huntington Beach, Lakewood Park, Clifton Beach, Edgewater Park, Whiskey Island, Cuyahoga River mouth, Burke Airport, Wildwood Park, and Sims Park. While most of the shoreline is artificial, the real attraction is the fish population attracted to the mixing of waters from the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie and the warm-water outflows from power plants.

100 years of records exist in the literature of ‘The Cleveland Bird Calendar’. This shoreline (nearest 1 mile) affords waterfowl visiting the south shore of Lake Erie a major resting area in migration and winter. No other segment of the south shore compares in waterfowl diversity.
