Living Forest — A Nonscary, fall treat
Join Mother Nature as she introduces her many woodland friends at Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area’s “Living Forest” from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, to begin at the Visitor Center. The cost is free and kids of all ages are invited to participate. Join in this fun, 40-minute, non-scary, fall treat for the whole family. Strollers and wagons are welcome as you meander along a wide, paved, barrier-free path. If you want to be like Mother Nature’s animal friends, come in costume. Plus, there will be crafts and free S’mores — yum.
Listen to each animal’s story, as they have a lot to tell. These educational messages will be uncomplicated and easy for young children to understand. Teenagers and adults will learn too. Living Forest is for families with members of all ages. Who are these critters who will be delivering the informative messages? They include a barred owl, deer, spider, bat, blue jays, skunk, raccoon, eagle, squirrel and more. Costumed Northwest Arkansas master naturalists will be delivering the meaningful messages.
