Destination: Burroughs Audubon Nature Center in Fleming Park, Blue Springs, MO
Departure Point: Wendy’s parking lot. 2116 Bernadette Dr. Columbia, MO 65203 (By the Columbia Mall)
Leader: Sherry Leonardo
CAS group will leave Wendy’s parking lot at 6:45 a.m. and drive to The Burroughs Audubon Nature Center where we’ll meet at the library around 8:30 am. Burroughs will provide hot beverages to enjoy while watching feeders from the comfortable viewing room. Blue Springs Lake will be our next destination to look for waterfowl and check the wetlands for winter residents. We’ll then break for lunch at Corner Café; it’s nearby with good food at reasonable prices. Following lunch we'll head over to Burr Oak Woods CA, where we'll check their feeders and walk some of the Missouri Tree Trail. If time allows, we'll finish at Lake Remembrance CA. This will give us a nice variety of habitats with minimal driving. Burroughs will keep their ears and eyes open for any unusual sightings that may change this exact itinerary.
We’ll start back to Columbia around 3 p.m. Please RSVP to Lori Turner by February 25th so we can all sit together for lunch.
The Burroughs Audubon Nature Center has an extensive nature library, gift shop and Wi-Fi access. For more information visit: http://burroughs.org/library.html
