Please mark your 2009 calendar for a field trip with the newly
reflegged Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society, Saturday January 10,
2009. Meet at the entrance to Chesney Prairie Natural Area (directions
below)starting at 10 AM. The relatively late start is to accommodate
travel and let things warm up a bit. Chesney is a fine place to see a
variety of grassland and open country birds typical of northwestern
Arkansas at mid-winter. Please share this announcement with anyone who
might be interested. Joe Woolbright has mowed good paths and folks can
walk as much or as little as they like among spectacular native
tallgrasses. There is plenty of good car birding with a good view of
the old Lindsley Prairie in the immediate area, too, if walking isn't
a good option. For more information, Joe Neal 479 521 1858, or email,
or Joe Woolbright 479 427 4277.

Location of CPNA: Benton County, near Siloam Springs, AR. How to get
there: From Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers, take highway 412 W to near
Siloam Springs city limits. At the intersection of 412 & 59, turn N
onto 59. You pass the Siloam Springs airport. Approximately 1 mile
past the airport, note an intersection: the road W is ?Chesney;? road
E is ?Bill Young.? Take Bill Young Road E approximately 0.8 miles. At
this point there is a gravel farm road going N. Go approximately 0.5
miles N on this road to the dead end at chicken houses and the
entrance sign to CPNA.
