The Diamond Lakes Arkansas Master Naturalists chapter gets its name from the five lakes located in our area. The lakes are Lake Ouachita, Lake Hamilton, Lake Catherine, Lake Greeson and Lake DeGray. Most DLAMN members live in Hot Springs and Hot Springs Village but our membership area includes the counties of Garland, Saline (western half), Hot Spring, Clark, Montgomery and Polk.
DLAMN was organized in 2014 with the help of the Central Arkansas Master Naturalists chapter located in Little Rock. The first class included fifteen Naturalists In Training (NITs) and there are now almost fifty members. Regular chapter meetings are held in various locations around Hot Springs with training and continuing education classes at several venues in Garland and Saline counties include Lake Ouachita State Park.
