Another opportunity to enjoy Arkansas outdoors. Put on you gardening clothes, grab your snippers and clippers! Volunteers will meet at the Tyler Bend Visitor Center at 9:30 a.m. and join members of BNRP to spruce up the gardens!

Native plant swap: If you have native plants that have spread, pot ‘em up and bring them along to trade along with seeds and rooted cuttings of native shrubs.

What to bring: Work gloves, weeding tools, leaf rakes, tubs for weeds and mulch.

If it’s a nice day, bring a sack lunch and we’ll picnic in the park. If it’s dreary, well plan to stop for lunch on the way home.

Volunteers work from 9 a.m. to noon on the first and third Wednesdays and first Fridays of each month throughout the year. Wear gloves and sturdy garden shoes, dress comfortably, and expect to get dirty. Tools needed include pruners, loppers, snips, weeders, trowels and others as indicated. Volunteers who live in Baxter, Marion, Boone and other counties may carpool from Mountain Home by meeting an hour before the work shift at the Baxter County Library at Highway 201 and 62 Bypass.

Join us in the theater for an inspirational film, “Hometown Habitat: Stories of Bringing Nature Home” featuring Dr. Douglas Tallamy, whose research on the use of non-native plants in landscaping has sounded the alarm about habitat and species loss. This 90 minute...
includes inspiring stories of community commitment to conservation landscaping with the message that we all have the power to support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of the earth by building a new army of habitat

heroes. Our own Karen Seale has paid the royalties for this film and will be providing it to us for our education.
It’s a film so there will be popcorn! Also there will be pizza, but you must register if you want to eat pizza! Bring your own beverage.
