NCAMN volunteers help cultivate the Ozark Folk Center State Park Heritage Herb Garden by transplanting, pruning, weeding, composting, watering and other tasks. They work under direct supervision of OFC master herbalist, Tina Marie Wilcox, in the Craft Village gardens spring, summer and fall and in the greenhouse in the winter and during inclement weather. 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. As volunteers work they learn about traditional uses of plants that they often see in the woods and along the streams where they pursue other activities. Occasionally, advanced training hours may be counted in addition to volunteer hours during a work morning. Volunteers record their work hours as follows: Activity—Garden Maintenance; Sponsor—State Park: Ozark Folk Center

CAMN has restarted our weekly workday at Audubon and the connected Gillam Park effective at least until late spring or early summer. Each Tuesday, 0900-1200, we will primarily be doing habitat management and/or trail maintenance. Initially the focus will be on removing invasive plants, creating/maintaining the Oak Savannah for grass-dwelling bird habitat, and establishing fire lines. Most of the work will involve lopping, chain sawing, very selective herbicide application with brushes, dragging cut material into piles, and litter removal. We will meet at the Audubon Center parking lot (4500 Springer Blvd, LR). Bring normal work clothes, gloves, water, and bug spray. Also bring your preferred tools, or you can use tools provided by Audubon. There will be other volunteer opportunities with Audubon (citizen science, seed collection, interpretation, etc.) in addition to the work days and those will be announced separately. The weekday work will begin Jan 28. As always with our projects, come when you can and leave when you want to. Record volunteer hour Activity according to the work you do. Sponsor is Audubon.

Our speaker is Jeff Nash, CAMN member. Jeff is former chair of the Sociology and Anthropology Department at UA, Little Rock. He has taught at University of Tulsa, Macalester College and Missouri State University. He and his wife Dina (CAMN) have presented papers at professional meetings on the resistance to the construction of the Turk coal plant. Tonights presentation addresses how large scale production, economic and population pressures and global capitalism exploit and shape nature. So much so, that scientists now refer our current epoch as the anthropocene. Environmental sociologists identify the intended and unintended consequences that social forces have on nature. In this talk, I review current research and theory about the ways that society interacts with nature.
Presentation at 6:30. Approved for 1.5 hours CE (enter hours as Continuing Education), sponsor CAMN
