Wonders of Winter Wildlife (WOWW) Hobbs State Park – January 20, 2018

15 Jan 2018 3:51 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

If the onset of “cabin fever” is beginning to set in, the Wonders of Winter Wildlife at Hobbs State Park will set you free.  Bring the whole family.

Birds N breakfast:  Enjoy some coffee, juice, and donuts on us.  The University of Arkansas will be catching birds, and then releasing them back into the wild.  Bring your camera for bird photos close up.

Local wildlife rehabilitator, Lynn Sciumbato, will give her always popular “Raptor Rescue” program using live birds native to northwest Arkansas.

Bird expert and author, Joe Neal, will talk about the “Birds of Beaver”, while Master Naturalist, Ken Leonard, will exhibit an eagle nest model.

Bird enthusiast, Rick Jones, will talk about the form and function of birds.

Memorable, family-orientated “table top” programs, a short trail hike, an eagle watch cruise, and evening astronomy programs complete the activities. *

Most activities will be at the Hobbs State Park visitor center located on Hwy. 12 just east of the Hwy. 12/War Eagle Rd. intersection
