More InfoNorthwest Arkansas Audubon Society will host a field trip to Woolsey Wet Prairie in Fayetteville on Sunday October 17, 2010. Meet on site at 9 AM.

The trip will be lead by Dr Andrew Scaboo, who has studied birds there from the beginning. This is an open brushy and grassy area with shallow pools. All kinds of open country species can be expected. Expect easy walking on earthen levees; boots are a good idea, but not necessary.

The meeting place is in front of the main gate area of the westside wastewater treatment plant on Broyles Ave. There's lots more information and directions on the NWAAS website. Go to nwarkaudubon.org; when you get there, look on the left hand side for Places to bird in Northwest Arkansas. Go there and look for the Woolsey Wet Prairie guide. Lots more information on what birds to expect are in National Audubon's ebird site (look for WWP in the Arkansas hot spots).
