Kiwanis Park

7:00 a.m.

A new local nonprofit, the Missouri Conservation Corps, has worked hard to remove invasive bush honeysuckle from Kiwanis Park. See this story from the March issue of The Chat for more details.

What birds will make use of this cleaned-up habitat? The Columbia Audubon Society has been asked to help find out!

On May 10, near the peak of spring songbird migration, we’ll explore the park while listening to and looking for birds. 

All skill levels welcome. If you’d like to borrow binoculars, please be in touch, as a few loaner pairs can be made available if needed.  

Meet at the Talbert Thurston shelter, located west of Maplewood Drive. We’ll start at 7 a.m. and bird until about 9 a.m.

Please refer to the listing on the Columbia Audubon Society website ( for official updates on trip status.
