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;

Shawnee Town Branch flows through the town of Yellville which makes it our only urban monitored stream. It is more of a challenge to collect specimens but as naturalists “we love a challenge”. Questions? Contact: Stream Team Leader Daniel Foster call 870-402-0022.

Take Hwy 62 from Mt. Home to Yellville, approximately 20 miles. The stream crosses Hwy 62 under a bridge in front of the American Legion Post where we set-up in the parking lot. Contact: Stream Team Leader Daniel Foster call 870-402-0022

National Park Service (NPS) asked us to clear 2 miles of Buffalo River Trail near Boxley Valley, Saturday September 28, 10AM to 1PM, rendezvous South Boxley Trailhead. Celebration of National Public Lands Day. We invited NWAMN chapter to join us. The Buffalo River Trail east terminus is located at Boxley Valley’s south end. The Ponca-Boxley section runs 10.8 miles from Ponca southward along the ridge overlooking Boxley Valley to Smith Creek at the bottom of the valley, a lovely trail through pristine emerald hollows and beech tree stands. The southernmost 1.8 miles is overgrown and needs clearing, and passes through some abandoned pastures.
Plan. We will clear 1.8 miles between Walker Mountain Road and Highway 21 trailhead. Rendezvous at Highway 21 trailhead, shuttle volunteers to Walker Mtn. Road, and volunteers will work their way back to the trailhead, 100’ uphill then level and downhill (458’ vertical). Smith Creek is occasionally a wet crossing. If we have enough volunteers, we may clear 1 mile north down into picturesque Arrington Hollow.
Experience Required – none.
Lunch. Bring a sack lunch and drinks, we will retire to the pavilion at Lost Valley for lunch.
Rain date. Saturday, October 5.
Tools. Bring work gloves, loppers or clippers. You may wish to use our power tools, NCAMN will bring power trimmers & backpack blowers. NPS will bring a heavy duty mower for the pasture.
