Volunteer for Saturday morning conservation work, suggests Joe Neal
If you have enjoyed the big nature show at the Important Bird Area called Eagle Watch Nature Trail, this upcoming Saturday March 2 is a chance to donate a little bit of time and a little effort to move the project forward. Saturday March 2, 8:30-12:30, at Eagle Watch, 1 mile west of Gentry off highway 12. Activities during the morning: removal of woody plants from prairie restoration area, butterfly garden maintenance, removal of a section of barbed wire fence, possible rescue and translocation of prairie plants from an area that may be impacted by development in Gentry. Tools to bring if you have them: garden tools, chain saw, loppers, leather gloves. Food and drink will be provided by SWEPCO. This is a Together Green project lead by Audubon Arkansas, with several partners including Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society. If you know you can come, you may preregister by sending a message to:email@example.com. The overall project at Eagle Watch is directed by Terry Stanfill. If you have questions, you can contact him:firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 479-752-3578. Finally, you do not have to leave your binoculars at home. NWAAS is a 100% invested partner here and I will be glad to answer questions as well and I will join in with my saw and my wire cutters.
