The current weather forecast is for a possibility of showers early tomorrow
morning and then clear the rest of the day, so we'll meet even if it's raining
tomorrow morning. It is suppose to get very warm so bring enough water for
yourself. Also, chiggers and ticks are out so bring your own bug spray,

St. Louis Audubon is sponsoring a birding trip to Hawn State Park, Ste.
Genevieve, MO on Saturday, April 9.
SINCE THIS IS PRIMARILY A HIKING TRIP, THE TRIP WILL BE CANCELED IF THERE
ARE STORMS AT 6:30 am THAT MORNING. CALL 314-359-9364 THAT MORNING IF YOU
HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE WEATHER.
This is an all day trip to one of our parks with the finest hiking trails
in the state. We will meet at the MODOT commuter lot on the southwest
corner of the intersection of Hwy 270 and Gravois (Hwy 30), south St. Louis
County, at 6:30 am. We will caravan or carpool from this
location. If you plan to ride with another birder, please bring $5 to
donate for their gas. You can also meet us at the Hawn State Park
park office around 8:00 am.
Plan for the day: It is approximately a 1 hour drive to Hawn
SP from the commuter lot. We will hike most of the morning and picnic
for lunch. After lunch, depending on the time and weather, we will go to
Pickle Springs to hike and bird. We will return to the commuter lot around
What to bring: You will need to dress for a variety of weather and
wear comfortable hiking shoes. You will need to bring plenty of water,
your lunch, and snacks. A light weight rain jacket or poncho would
be handy to carry.
We hope to see many of our early migrants as well as the beautiful Spring
trees and foliage that makes this area so popular. If you have any
questions, please e-mail me.
