Mark your calendar!  The Ozark Society’s Spring ’20 Buffalo River Trail work session is scheduled for April 20-24. There will likely be some work happening April 17-19, and maybe the 25th as well. We’ll be camping at Tyler Bend again in the main campground (sites #22-26 at no

charge) so join us for a day, the weekend, or the whole week.   Note

that the Ozark Society’s Spring Meeting is April 24-26th at Tyler Bend.


I don’t yet know whether we’ll be able to do new construction to finish the trail or whether it will all be maintenance.


If you can join us for the week, or most of it, there is an option where you can pay $50 into a fund to cover food and camp expenses and then participate in our group meals (Sunday dinner through Saturday breakfast).  There is also a 3-day option for $35.  Contact me for more details.  Otherwise you will need to supply your own food and cooking/cleaning utensils.


Regardless, everyone needs to supply their own sleeping accommodations, water containers, eating utensils and work gloves.  Safety glasses are very beneficial for some tasks. A day pack for carrying your stuff on the trail is very useful.  The Park Service supplies the tools, though you can bring your own if you’d like.  The campground has potable water, flush toilets, and hot showers.

Some parts of the BRT/OHT between Richland Creek and AR-14 are looking for adopters. The Ozark Highlands Trail Association now has overall responsibility for coordinating this so see https://ozarkhighlandstrail.com/maintenance/ for more information and contact OHTmaintenance@gmail.com.
