Field Trip – August 27 – Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge

Bald Knob, White County

Meet at 7:00 a.m. near the Arvest Bank at the Other Center parking lot in North Little Rock.  The Other Center is at 4000 McCain Blvd. across from McCain Mall.  Take Exit 1 west off US-67/167 and cross back over the highway.  We’ll arrive at Bald Knob NWR around 8:30 a.m. for those who want to meet us there.  Look for cars parked on Coal Chute Road.  This federal refuge is also a National Audubon Important Bird Area (IBA).  We expect to find 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.  Scopes are helpful.  Very little walking will be involved.  There is no bathroom on-site.  There is a McDonald’s off Hwy. 67/167 at Bald Knob Exit 55.
