Breakfast with the birds at Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area

 Updated:

From 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. each of those days, the Wildlife Society of the University of Arkansas catches songbirds, observes them, and then releases them back into the wild. Find out what this type of research has taught us about these beautiful birds.

Don’t miss your chance to see songbirds and the scientific process up close. It’s exciting for children and adults.

The event is free and registration is not required. The park visitor center is located on Ark. 12, just east of the Ark. 12 and War Eagle Road intersection. For more information, call 479-789-5000.
