Field Trips - Triple Barrel Field Trip
Triple Barrel (PRM), Jackson County
Leader: Join Audubon biological science technician Bryan White and the Mississippi Coast Audubon Society for an exclusive look at an Audubon Coastal Bird Survey site normally closed to the public. Triple Barrel (the site known to our old-time birders as Pascagoula River Marsh) is good for both Passerines and Waterbirds, having uplands, freshwater marsh, and brackish water marsh. Bring water and snacks appropriate for the field. Rubber knee boots or other footwear you can get wet and/or muddy are recommended.
Place and time: 7:30am till about 11. Meet at the gravel lot on the northeast corner of Jerry St. Pe Hwy and USS Vicksburg Way (Singing River Causeway) in Pascagoula.
Conditions: Short but steep path to top of berm, then easy walk on a 1.7 mile level earthen berm.
Note: This site is not open to the public except for this field trip. You MUST REGISTER for this trip beforehand, by filling out a Hold Harmless form for Jackson County Port Authority. Email Bryan (BWhite@audubon.org) to register.
