Ozark Society Highlands Chapter Young Naturalists Program

The Ozark Society Young Naturalists will again offer sessions this fall for children ages 7 to 9. The Highlands Chapter of the Ozark Society began this initiative in 2018 through a partnership with the Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists and Arkansas Audubon Society. Also we have a OS Young Naturalists Native Plant Garden thanks to a lot help from the Master Naturalists.  The presenters we have lined up for this fall include: geology (UofA), entomology (UofA), reptile/amphibians (UofA), and animal tracks and traces (Naturalist,  Joel Emerson).


  • This is a family event, so at least one parent or guardian must accompany each child.
  • Please contact:  ckline901@gmail.com if you and your child plan to participate.
  • Location:  Woolsey Farmstead and Wet Prairie Sanctuary, 15 South Broyles Avenue, Fayetteville AR 72704.  Meet in the parking lot.
  • Leader: Dr. J.D. Wilson, University of Arkansas.
  • Children participants, ages 7 to 9.
  • Sunday October 13, 2019, 1:30 to 3:30 pm.
  • All Young Naturalists should stay with the main group on the trail.
  • All children should wear: closed shoes or boots, carry water, rain gear as needed, long pants suggested.
  • It’s a good idea to bring a snack as we often stop for a short snack break.
  • All sessions will be from 1:30 to 3:30 on Sunday afternoons. We’ll make a judgment call about when to actually finish up the program; in short, we may finish a little early. Everyone should have a great time without being overly tired.
  • Sorry no pets allowed.
