The St. Joseph Bay State Buffer Preserve will resume tram tours beginning Jan. 16 and will occur monthly on the third Thursday of the month.

Visitors will meet at the Buffer Preserve Center at 9 a.m. EST for a little history, a little learning, and the importance of the Buffer Preserve to St. Joseph Bay! Bring binoculars, cameras, hats, water bottles, and anything else to make the ride more comfortable.

*Have the ability to follow verbal and/or visual instructions.

*Have the ability to enter and exit ADA accessible tram independently or with the assistance of a companion.

*Have the ability to withstand exposure to the outdoors and insects for a period of 1.5 hours.
