Missouri is 40th State To Have A Birding Trail: "The Great Missouri Birding Trail" Website Now Open

May 29, 2017

The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center hosted a kickoff event for the Great Missouri Birding Trail. Missouri is the 40th state to have a trail like this, which was created by Mike Doyen, president of the Missouri Bird Conservation Foundation. It’s not a physical walking trail, but an online guide for the best places to go birding in the state. We captured the sounds of the Birding Trail kickoff, and tagged along for a short birding expedition for this audio postcard.


Check out the Great Missouri Birding Trail.



Freshly bloomed water lilies on the grounds of the Cape Nature Center can be seen along one of the walking trails.
