Join us on Thursday, December 11, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., at the Little Rock Audubon Center for our annual holiday potluck and silent auction.

This fun-filled event is a great opportunity to enjoy wonderful food, spread some holiday cheer, and exchange stories with fellow birders.

If you are bringing an item for the auction please be there by 6:00 p.m. in order to get the item(s) labeled and in place. We’ll begin accepting bids at 6:15 and sit down for dinner at 6:30.

Items can be purchased or handmade.

ASCA will provide the drinks. Plates, cups, and eating utensils will be furnished by Audubon Arkansas.

In addition to all the fun, we’ll conduct one important point of business – elect officers and board members for the upcoming year. So exercise your right to vote!

The spacious and “green” Little Rock Audubon Center is located on the southeast side of Little Rock at 4500 Springer Blvd., just minutes from downtown.

Take I-440 to exit 1, Springer Blvd.  Go south (left) on Springer Blvd. Cross the railroad tracks, then look for the center and Audubon Arkansas sign on the right.

Bring your favorite dish and join us on December 11 for a fun-filled evening and a chance to visit with fellow birders from around the state.

Nimrod Lake and Harris Brake Lake—Perryville

Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the west Little Rock Wal Mart parking lot (northwest corner) on Hwy. 10/Cantrell Rd. We’ll caravan to the dam site at Nimrod Lake and start our exploration with a short walk across the dam. We’ll then travel to various access points along the lake. Nimrod Lake is Arkansas’s oldest reservoir, created by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1942 by damming the Fourche LaFave River. Next, we’ll drive to Harris Brake Lake and look for more waterfowl. Our target birds will be eagles, ducks, mergansers, loons, and Osprey. Harris Brake Lake was built in 1955 and is the third largest lake owned by AGFC. The lake is located one mile south of Perryville. Walking will be limited. No boots are needed. Bring binoculars, scopes, drinks, snacks, and lunch. We should be back to Little Rock by mid-afternoon.
