The ST. LOUIS AUDUBON SOCIETY is sponsoring a field trip this Saturday to Horseshoe Lake in Madison County, IL. SEE SPECIAL NOTE.
DATE: Saturday, March 17, 2018
MEETING TIME: 8:00 a.m.
DIRECTIONS & MEETING PLACE: From St Louis take I-70 east to IL hwy 111. Turn left and go north 3 miles then left into the park. Take the first right and meet at the second parking lot, the big one, next to the picnic pavilion and restrooms.
PLAN: This is planned to be a full day trip and will involve only light walks. We'll exploit birding opportunities in the HSL area then take a lunch break at the Pilot Travel Center on hwy 203. There are multiple options to buy food or bring your own. After lunch we can continue in the HSL area or, if there's time and interest, head up to Riverlands.
SPECIAL NOTE: Saturday's weather forecast has deteriorated slightly in 24 hrs. To make the field trip enjoyable for everyone I'd like to monitor the forecast and, at the end of the week if it gets real ugly, postpone the trip one week. Monitor this listserv and on Fri, well before the end of the day, I will post an update whether we go on Mar 17 or postpone the trip until Mar 24.
PARTICIPATION: Everyone is welcome, SLAS members and non-members.
LEADER: Mike Thelen
