Twenty-plus Columbia Audubon members attended the Open House at the Boone County Nature School site on Saturday, Oct. 17. Mike Szydlowski and Ragan Webb from Columbia Public Schools and Brian Flowers with the Missouri Department of Conservation led walking tours of the site and provided an update on various aspects of the project along the way, including the Council House meeting facility donated by CAS. Members also had a chance to walk some of the trails on the property and spotted two American woodcocks–not quite what you’d expect on a warm, windy fall day.
