St. Louis Audubon will be sponsoring a birding trip on Wednesday, April 1,
to Voelkerding Slough, a new area for a SLAS trip. The slough is
located between the Katy trail and Hwy 47 in Dutzow, MO. We will
meet at the Hampton Lake parking lot at Busch CA and carpool/caravan from
there. Don Hays and Jim Jackson have offered to meet us at the slough and
show us around the area.
PLAN: This is a 1/2 trip and we should return to Busch between
12 and 1 pm. Weather permitting, we can picnic at the Busch
headquarters picnic area for those who would like to bring their lunch.
There will be some hiking along the Katy trail, and we might have to hike into
some muddy areas at the slough to view the shorebirds.
DIRECTIONS TO BUSCH: Take HWY 94 south from HWY 40 about 1/2 mile to
Hwy D. Turn right on Hwy D and go about 1 1/2 miles to the entrance to
Busch CA. Turn left at the T to Hampton Lake, on your right, and meet in
the parking lot.
TIME: We will meet at Busch at 9 am and should be at the Dutzow/Katy
trail entrance around 9:30 am.
All birders are welcome. We will meet rain or shine.
