Norfork Trail, section 3 of 5, annual trail maintenance. The segment is 3 miles between Sycamore Highlands to George's Cove. Record your hours sponsor is US Army Corps of Engineers. Bring work gloves, loppers, clippers, or use our power tools. The 13-mile linear Norfork Trail is comprised of five moderately challenging sections, separated by six trailheads.

Directions. Most will assemble at Sycamore Highlands trailhead, aka “Devils Backbone”, located near Lake Norfork. From Mountain Home Bypass, drive 4.6 miles south on state highway 5, then turn left on highway 342. Highway 342 is known as Sycamore Springs Road. Drive 2.5 miles (stay right at fork), and turn right on Lake Heights Drive into the Sycamore Highlands subdivision. Follow Lake Heights Drive 0.7 mile straight through the subdivision, past dead end sign and the last house in the subdivision. Trailhead parking is just beyond the tree line. The trail will fork north and south 100 yards down the trail. GPS N36 16'55", W92 15'38".

Possibly, we may send a few volunteers to the next trailhead, depending on group size and turnout. Georges Cove trailhead is approx. 2 miles away by car, farther out on highway 342. Georges Cove trailhead is located near Lake Norfork. From Mountain Home Bypass, drive 4.6 miles south on Highway 5. Turn left on AR 342 (Sycamore Springs Road) and drive 3.2 miles. Turn right at Georges Cove boat launch sign and drive ¼ mile.

Where? Robert Fuhler’s House – 29 Ridgeview Drive, Conway (correctly located on Google Earth).

Larry Price has been leading forays for various Habitat Restoration projects since the Spring. Over forty species have been collected, most of which have already been processed. The target species during this party will require container shaking and screening (which is noisy and oddly therapeutic); this will be the final seed processing party. Participants will be instructed on the details on these processing techniques.

Activities will be both indoors and out; rain should not present a problem; there will also be a tea break that will involve the eating of snacks and, well, the sipping of tea.

As an added bonus, if anyone would like to stick around after the final processing, I am planning on having a bonfire and cooking weenies to celebrate our successful seed cleaning extravaganza! There will be quaffing materials on hand as well.

Anyway, please mark your calendars and make plans to attend! Registration is recommended.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email or at 501.733.4019.

With most of the leaves gone and winter birds moving in, it is a delightful time to go birding. Many of you know Heather Cook (NWAMN) who will be leading us in a bird walk at the Fred Berry Crooked Creek Nature Center on Wednesday, December 14. This walk is for all birders at all levels. Ken Forman (AGFC) will be on hand to help you get the most out of your binoculars (setting the diopter, etc.)and to loan binoculars to anyone needing them. Matt Gideon (AGFC) will likely accompany us. Heather did a preliminary walk last weekend and saw 23 different species including Northern Harrier, Brown Creeper, Wilson’s Snipe, a variety of woodpeckers, and a Bald Eagle chasing Snow Geese. Heather used her e-bird account to share with me her list of birds along with pictures from the day. She has agreed to show us how to use e-bird to record what we see and contribute to data collection.

The walk starts at 8:30 and will go until 10:30. Some of that time will be spent inside. I plan to bring some treats to share and Ken usually has the coffee going, so come a little early if you want to socialize. We will start out at the classroom. For anyone new to the center, that is the building up the paved road from the pavilion. Also, if you are new to the place, there are bathrooms available just across from the classroom.
