Field Trip – Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge August 17, 2013

Meet at 7:00 a.m. in North Little Rock at the Other Center parking lot on the east side of the lot behind McDonald’s.  The Other Center is located across from McCain Mall, on McCain Blvd.  Take Exit 1 West, off Hwy. 67/167.  We’ll arrive at Bald Knob NWR at around 8:30 a.m. for those who want to meet us there.  The federal refuge is also a National Audubon Important Bird Area (IBA).  We expect shorebirds, herons, egrets, night-herons, and possibly Wood Storks and Roseate Spoonbills.  It will be very hot so bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a hat.  If you own a scope, bring it.  Very little walking will be involved.  There is no bathroom on-site.  There is a McDonald’s just off Hwy. 67/167 at the Bald Knob exit.  This is a morning trip.  Go to www.fws.gov/baldknob/ for more information about the refuge.
