I’ll be in Memphis, Tennessee in early January and have 2.5 days to explore the area. I’d like to visit the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge in Arkansas, as I’m working on a story about ivory-billed woodpeckers. But other than that, I have a rental car, no set plans and a lot of flexibility to explore Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, etc.
I’m particularly interested in swamp rabbits. Cotton and rice rats are other species in the area I haven’t seen. If you know of any nice natural areas, let me know.–Matt
