Field Trip - Delaware Park And Holla Bend National Wildlife Refuge

Saturday, Jan 26, 2019 at 7:30am

Holla Bend National Wildlife Refuge
Pottsville, AR 72858

We’ll carpool to Delaware Park, located on the southwest side of Lake Dardanelle.  We should arrive at the Delaware Park boat ramp around 8:45 a.m. for anyone who wants to meet us there.  We’ll scan the lake for gulls, pelicans, loons, mergansers, ducks, grebes, and eagles.  A rare gull or duck is a possibility.  The lake can be very cold and windy.  Dress in layers, including gloves and hats.

Next, we’ll caravan to the Holla Bend NWR headquarters’ parking lot.  There is a $4.00 entrance fee per vehicle.  A duck stamp or a National Parks pass will get a vehicle in for free.  Our target birds will be raptors, including nesting Bald Eagles, also swans, ducks, geese, and sparrows.  At Holla Bend, there will be some walking in tall grass, so boots are recommended.  Bring snacks, lunch, and plenty of water.  We’ll return to Little Rock late afternoon.
