Please bring your own water, snacks, lunch and wear comfortable shoes. There will be some walking on flat terrain. There could be some insects so bring your own spray. This is planned as an all day trip, we will see how the birding and weather is and decide where to eat lunch and whether or not to continue to Riverlands. If some are interested we will lunch at McDonald’s in Alton
Directions: To reach CBCA, go north approximately 2.8 miles from the I-270 Riverview Drive exit. Riverview Drive becomes Columbia Bottom Road at its intersection with Larimore Road. Look for the CBCA sign on the right side of the road. After immediately entering CBCA, make the first left to reach the headquarters parking lot.
