The Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary (RMBS) was developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers as part of their "Rivers Project." The RMBS is 3700 acres of bays, ponds, wetlands, marshes and prairies right in the middle of the Mississippi River migratory flyway and is an excellent place for observing such migratory birds as bald eagles, trumpeter swans, Canada Geese, many different types of song birds, Great Blue Heron, many different gulls and ducks and so many others! The National Audubon Society and Audubon Missouri have the Audubon Center located there at Riverlands and are partners with the Corps at the Sanctuary.
The Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary is open year-round, depending on river conditions. The Audubon Center is open every day, 8am to 4pm, only closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and New Year's Day. See website for more information on events and programs held throughout the year at the Audubon Center.
