Field Trip – February 18, 2017 Two Rivers Park Bridge and Two Rivers Park

Meet at 9:00 a.m. in the parking lot of the Two Rivers Park Bridge located at
4468 River Mountain Road on the southeast end of the Two Rivers Park peninsula.
We’ll scope the river from the parking lot and bridge, then walk the paved trail.
You can turn around at any point and head back. After returning to our cars, we’ll
drive to the west entrance of Two Rivers Park and walk the big field and horse
trail. Both areas have a diverse population of sparrows. Knee-high rubber boots are
recommend for the big field because of copious sand burrs. If any rare loons have
been reported, birders can continue on to Lake Maumelle. Bring water, snacks, and
a scope if you have one. We should finish around noon.
Take Exit 9 west off I-430 onto Cantrell Rd. At the first stop light, turn right
(north) onto River Mountain Road. Go to the bottom of the hill then bear right to
the main parking lot. GPS coordinates: 34.797931, -92.384704.
