Take Upper Bottom Road north out of Hickman. It crosses Bayou du Chien and
turns left. It then turns to the right and continues north. Pull off at
the second (right) turn. There is access there to the flooded bottom land
along Bayou du Chien. This is not far from the mouth of the river where
it meets the Mississippi River. Species collected:
