“Living Forest”- a Free Activity for Families at Hobbs State Park – A Learning Experience from the Animals Themselves

  • 28 Oct 2017
  • 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Visitor Center

Join Mother Nature as she introduces her many woodland friends at Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area’s “Living Forest” on Saturday October 28th.

Listen to each animal’s story.  They have a lot to tell us.  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:  barred owl, deer, spider, bat, blue jays, skunk, raccoon, eagle, squirrel, and more.  Costumed Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists will be delivering the meaningful messages. 

Join in this fun, 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.   Also experience:  crafts and free S’mores – yum, and Mother Nature’s gift bags for the first 100 children.

Where:  Hobbs State Park visitor center on Highway 12 just east of the Hwy 12/War Eagle Road intersection

When:    Saturday October 28, 2017 - Come any time from 1 pm – 5 pm

Cost:       Free
