La Cygne Lake and Marais des Cygnes Wildlife Areas

Join Mark Land as we look for year-round residents, such as Pileated Woodpecker, and fall migrants in the woods and wetlands around the area’s several pools. In addition, we’ll stop at La Cygne Lake (Linn County Park), a man-made, warm water lake which is made so by its role as water source for the nearby power plant. We’ll also drive through the (strip) mined land area south of the power plant to look for open grassland species. Plan to bring lunch and/or snacks for this all day trip. Meet at 7:00 a.m. at the Price Chopper on the northwest corner of 119th Street and Metcalf in Overland Park for carpooling. This trip will have minimal walking and is mainly an auto tour. Please call or email Mark for more information at 913-381-4324 and
