Bald Knob, White Co.
Meet at 7:00 a.m. in North Little Rock on the east side of the Other Center parking lot below McDonald’s. The Other Center is on McCain Blvd. across from McCain Mall. Take Exit 1 west off US-67/167. We’ll arrive at Bald Knob NWR around 8:30 a.m. for those who want to meet us there. Look for the line of cars parked on Coal Chute Road. This federal refuge is also a National Audubon Important Bird Area. Expect to see 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. If you have a scope, bring it. Very little walking will be involved.
There is no bathroom on-site. There is a McDonald’s just off Hwy. 67/167 at Bald Knob Exit 55. Go to www.fws.gov/baldknob/ for driving directions and more information about the refuge. GPS: 35.260233, -91.571903
