Clark Street Beach Bird Sanctuary (CSBBS) is located on Sheridan Road in Evanston, just south of the Northwestern University campus. It is on the east side of the road, between the beach and the bike path, and just north of Evanston's Clark Street beach house (1811 Sheridan Road).  


The sanctuary is fenced in, and only volunteers have access inside. However, birds are easily viewed from outside the fence.  CSBBS is a hot spot on eBird.


Parking is available on the street. Free parking is available in Northwestern University parking lots after 4 pm on weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.
