NCAMN - BNR Nars Cemetery Cleanup POSTPONED

We have been asked to assist NPS personnel rehabilitation of the Nars Cemetery near Woolum in Searcy county. This cemetery covers about an acre and dates back as far as the mid-1800's. We will work with NPS personnel to clear overgrowth, clean headstones and rebuild a perimeter fence. Lunch will be provided. Volunteers should bring snacks, work gloves, closed toed sturdy shoes, and weather appropriate clothing and masks. If you need a mask, they will be provided. The clean up will take place over 5 days and no more than 10 volunteers will be onsite at one time to allow space for social distancing. Volunteers will meet at the Woolum River Access. (those who wish can carpool/caravan from Flippin Walmart leaving at 10:30 am). Drive time is 1 hour from Flippin Walmart. Directions: From Hwy 65 at St. Joe take Hwy 374 west. This road leads to both Bakers Ford and Woolum access. From the Hwy 65 turnoff, the drive to Woolum is about 8 miles. The first 4 miles are paved and the last 3 gravel. the first sign to Baker's Ford is about 2 miles from the Hwy 65 turn off. There are additional signs pointing to Woolum. If in doubt, bear right. There is a low water crossing of the Buffalo at Woolum. NPS personnel will get us across if the driver does not wish to cross in their vehicle or the water is too high to cross.
