September 12, 2015 – Field Trip – Bona Dea Trails and Sanctuary, Russellville


Meet at 7:00 a.m. at the Mayflower commuter lot off I-40 West at Exit 135.  We will arrive at the Bona Dea Trails parking lot around 8:15 a.m. for anyone who wants to meet us there.  Our target birds will be migrating fall warblers.  Bona Dea Trails is 186 acres of wetlands and woodlands in the Prairie Creek floodplain.  The trails are paved and level for easy walking.  Lunch is on your own.  There are picnic tables at Bona Dea, or several fast food restaurants are nearby.  Depending on time and current bird sightings, the group may choose to take a possible side trip to Holla Bend.

From Little Rock, take I-40 west to Russellville.  Take Exit 81.  Turn left off the exit ramp, then left at the light to go south on Hwy 7.  Cross over the interstate, take a right at the second stoplight (Lakefront Drive).  The trail’s parking area will be on your left in less than a mile.
