Harbor Island National Wildlife Refuge Chippewa County Michigan
Harbor Island is a 695 acre island located one mile north of Drummond Island, Michigan, and 3.5 miles south of the United States-Canadian border in Potagannissing Bay on Lake Huron. Habitats included on this island consist of balsam/cedar lowlands and oak, beech, and maple uplands. Soil consists of shallow organics or sands over dolomite rock. Resident wildlife species include fox, grouse, snowshoe hare, white-throated sparrows, gray jays and magnolia warblers. Timber wolves from St. Joseph Island, Ontario, may hunt on the island during winter months. Eagles also use the island's large bay for fishing each spring and fall.
   Access to the island is by private boat. Harbor Island NWR's sheltered bay is used by boaters for fishing, water skiing, and as an overnight anchorage. A sand beach is also used for swimming.
