Besides the upcoming convention of Arkansas Audubon Society (in Hope, Friday April 30-May 2) with its numerous field trips & interesting lectures (check out the AAS web site for details), there are 4 immediately upcoming events in which Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society is involved. There are no charges, fees, etc for any of these events. All skills, interests, and mobility levels are welcome. NWAAS is helping with the annual Birder's Weekend at Devil's Den State Park, including a casual & usually spring birdy walk on Saturday May 1, starting at 9 AM. I'm talking about/illustrating western birds in Arkansas in the evening at the park. The following day, Sunday May 2, David Chapman will lead an outing to spring bird-rich Lake Fayetteville. Meet at the north end of the dam (near bait shop) at 7 AM. We'll bird this area, then drive down toward the Environmental Study Center. NWAAS is also onboard Saturday May 8 and Sunday May 9 for International Migratory Bird days coordinated in Washington and Benton counties by Mike Mlodinow. We urge everyone available to participate. If you can help, please contact Mike: firstname.lastname@example.org.
