Meet at the Jolly Rogers Marina on Lake Maumelle at 7:30 a.m. Loons, mergansers, ducks, and grebes are settling in on the lake for their winter stay. We will access the lake at several points and spend time scanning and scoping the open water. We’ll check the woods along the trails for our winter forest residents. The wind coming off the lake can be chilly. Bring a warm jacket and gloves. Wear comfortable walking shoes. There will be some walking on level trails. Bring water and your scope. We should finish the trip by noon.
