Meet Dr. Dan “The Birdman” Scheiman at 7:30 a.m. at the lower entrance to Allsopp Park. This park has a nice mix of habitats favored by migrating fall warblers, vireos, and thrushes. The trip will be a slow-paced walk on both paved and gravel trails. Wear sturdy walking shoes. Sandals are not recommended. Following the field trip, treat yourself to a stroll through the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market and enjoy the many food trucks, produce stalls, and craft booths.
Directions to the lower entrance: coming from west Little Rock, take Cantrell Road east to the stoplight at Cedar Hill Road (bottom of Cantrell hill-Riverdale area). Turn right (south), go two blocks. At 3700 Cedar Hill Rd. turn right into the park and go to the far end parking area. GPS: 34.762413, -92.313165.
