Being outside and observing nature has a way of recharging my batteries. I couldn’t tell you if it is the fresh air, the chorus of life resulting from the birds, bugs, and frogs, or just the open space that is good for my soul.
Whatever the reason, I’m typically always open for an excuse to go outside and explore. If you find yourself in the same boat and are looking for something to do, I might have an option for you.
This time of year, right after teal season and before the regular waterfowl season, is a great time to explore Missouri’s wetlands either by yourself or with a family member or friend. The weather can’t be beat and it is exciting to see birds start trickling back through our state as they start their seasonal flights south.
