This tour takes you to the greatest confluence of big rivers in North America (Illinois, Mississippi, and Missouri Rivers). On our visit to Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), Riverlands Army Corp of Engineers, and Marias Temp Clare CA we explore the migratory birds that depend on the bottomlands the three rivers have created. We’ll see ducks, geese, pelicans, herons and other shore birds besides nesting eagles as we discuss current management practices. Learn about the fisheries, geology, and cultural history that shaped this region.
