Van Harris is our leader for a trip to Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge in Turrell, Arkansas—a short trip across the river. Check out eBird sightings at this hotspot.

Meet at the refuge visitor center at 178 Hammond Avenue, Turrell, AR, at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 8. Birding from car with some easy walking. Bring lunch if you wish. Restrooms won’t be open.

Located only four miles west of the Mississippi River and 15 miles northwest of Memphis, the refuge is an important stopover for waterfowl traveling through the Mississippi Flyway and for neotropical songbirds as they migrate to and from Central and South America.

You don’t have to be a MTOS member to participate, there’s no charge, and be sure to bring binoculars.
