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).

Preliminary Details:

• Please contact: ckline901@gmail.com if you and your child plan to participate.

• Our age group is 7-9; parents or guardians must be present. It’s a family event!

• 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.

• You will be contacted via email and on the Ozark Society Highlands Chapter Facebook if a nature outing has to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

• Sorry no pets allowed.
