Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge, August 23

Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge

Bald Knob, AR

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 across from McCain Blvd. from McCain Mall.  Take Exit 1 West off US-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.  We expect to see shorebirds, herons, night-herons, egrets, and possibly Wood Storks and Roseate Spoonbills.  It will be very hot so bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a hat.  If you have 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 Bald Knob Exit 55.  Go to for driving directions and more information about the refuge.  GPS:  35.260233, -91.571903
