I will be leading a MRVAC field trip to the Canon River Bottoms on Sunday,
May 23rd at 8am.  This is a leisurely hike on a little known state forest
trail on an old railroad bed through river bottom forest near where the
Canon River meets the Mississippi River near Redwing. We will be looking
for early migrants and Cuckoos which nest in the area.

This hike is free and open to all.  No need to contact me to let me know
you will be joining us. Just show up.  Make sure you bring insect
repellent, although if you wish to volunteer as mosquito bait, you will be
welcome.  Bring a lunch if you wish to join us for an after lunch
destination, as yet undetermined.

Directions:  From Highway 52, take Highway 50 towards Redwing.  This road
is absorbed by Highway 61 and becomes a four lane highway, which comes down
a major hill to cross the Canon River.  After you pass the turn-off for the
casino, make a left at the next intersection (CR 46) near the BOTTOM of the
hill.  Take the fork to the right (Collischan Road).  Follow the road about
two and a half miles and take the fork to the left into the parking area
for the trail head.
