NOTE: Unfortunately, parts of this event have been cancelled due to the severe weather. Please call the park office for an update: 479-789-5000.

It’s been raining.  It’s been cold.  We’ve been stuck in the house and we’re itching to get out.  Let’s go to Hobbs State Park for Wonders of Winter Wildlife.  Bring the whole family and have some fun.

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 close up bird photos.

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

Also, the Cowboy’s Catering food truck will be here to make it easy to have lunch.
