▲ Join Hobbs State Park staff for snorkelling. Snorkelling is the prac­tice of swim­ming on or through wa­ter while equipped with a div­ing mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usu­ally fins. Use of this equip­ment al­lows the snorkeler to ob­serve un­der­wa­ter at­trac­tions for ex­tended pe­ri­ods of time with rel­a­tively little ef­fort. The pri­mary ap­peal is the op­por­tu­nity to ob­serve un­der­wa­ter life in a nat­u­ral set­ting without the com­pli­cated equip­ment and train­ing re­quired for scuba div­ing. Join a Hobbs State Park in­ter­preter guide to truly ap­pre­ci­ate Beaver Lake as few have. There will be a short pon­toon boat ride to an un­spoiled, quiet cove, search­ing for the hid­den di­ver­sity of un­der­wa­ter life. Time and date is 1-4 p.m. Thurs­day, Aug. 31. All par­tic­i­pants meet at Rocky Branch Ma­rina, 8872 Rocky Branch Ma­rina Road, Rogers, AR 72756 — Arkansas High­way 12 east from Rogers to Arkansas High­way 303 north to Rocky Branch Ma­rina Road. All par­tic­i­pants un­der 18 must be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult and the adult must be in the wa­ter. Life jack­ets, masks and snorkels pro­vided. The cost is $20 for adults (13 and up) and $10 for chil­dren (through age 12). Pr­ereg­is­tra­tion and pay­ment re­quired. To regis­ter call: 479-789-5000.
