Itaska Audubon Society
In July, 1976, a group of cottage owners on the South end of the beach joined together to buy 50 acres of land between Beach Avenue and the government road allowance immediately to the east and the entrance road to Itaska to the North.
The goal was to protect the land from future development and to preserve it as a bird sanctuary and nature reserve. The 27 cottage owners incorporated the Itaska Audubon Society to act as stewards for this land. Each year the Society collects dues and elects a board.
