Field Trip – Millwood Lake—Saratoga October 5

Meet at 7:00 a.m. at the commuter lot at I-430/630 off Shackleford Road in Little Rock.  We should arrive around 10:00 a.m. at the observation deck overlooking the lake at Beard’s Bluff Park for those who would like to meet us there.  Our target birds will be herons, egrets, ibises, terns, gulls (maybe Sabine’s), and late migrants.  An alligator sighting is also possible and butterflies should still be plentiful.  Bring scope, water, snacks, and lunch.  There are snacks and drinks at the marina.  Very little walking will be involved.  Drive time to Millwood Lake is three hours each way.  This will be an all-day trip.

Millwood Lake is in the southwest corner of the state, north of Texarkana.  Beard’s Bluff Park is approximately 5 miles west of Saratoga on Hwy. 32.


Meet at 7 AM
