Join Us as We Celebrate Alice Andrew’s Neil Compton Award

“Ozark Alice” Andrews of Little Rock is a more than 40-year member of the Ozark Society and is honored as the latest recipient of the Neil Compton Award for her tireless work in conservation. Alice has served extended terms as Ozark Society President and Conservation Chair, finding herself in the middle of many conservation battles to preserve water and air quality and wilderness areas in Arkansas. For all her work in conservation, many of us most fondly recall and deeply appreciate her leadership in helping to organize extended trips on the Buffalo River.

We will celebrate Alice’s Neil Compton Award on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 80 Belle River Point, Maumelle, AR, 72113 at Janet and Alan Nye’s home on the Arkansas River. We will party from 4:30 pm until 7:00 pm. Be there as President David Peterson presents the award to Alice at 5 pm.

At Alice’s request, the celebration will be a fund raiser to benefit the Ozark Society’s efforts to preserve and protect the Buffalo National River. Effective now until October 20, 2018, Legal Fund donations honoring Alice Andrews and Dr. Doug James, our most recent recipients of the Neil Compton Award, and the recommended $20 donation at the door will count toward the matching pledge of $10,000 David Peterson has outlined in his article above. Please don’t miss the opportunity to double your own gifts given to preserve and protect the Buffalo National River!
