At the state park, guest speakers and park interpreters lead walks and talks exploring butterfly biology and gardening. Children of all ages enjoy the popular Bug Bonanza Pavilion, which includes live insects, games, and make-and-take crafts. The Logan County Master Gardeners’ plant sale and a special concert add to the fun. Visit MountMagazineStatePark.com or phone 479-963-8502 for more information.
And yes, I know it’s going to be steaming hot in the River Valley this weekend. But, if you head up Mount Magazine the average annual temperature is 6 degrees cooler on the summit than in surrounding areas with the mid-summer to summer temperatures frequently 10 to 15 degrees cooler than surrounding valleys.
