Living Forest Program at Hobbs This Weekend

Jill M. Rohrbach
Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area in Rogers is offering some more great programming this weekend. Catch the “Living Forest” presentation at the park’s visitor center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 21 and 22, and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 23.

Join “Mother Nature” as she introduces you to her many forest friends (costumed humans). You can listen to each animal’s story and learn what you can do to make their lives easier. Resource Raccoon, Arkansas’s mascot, will also be there.

The educational message highlighting the importance of trees and forest wildlife is easy for children to comprehend, so bring the kids and have fun meandering along a wide, paved, barrier-free path. Strollers and wagons are welcome. You’re also welcome to come in an animal friend costume of your own.

Healthy refreshments will be included. And if you attended this program last year, come again because new characters will be introduced this year. The cost is $5 per person with kids under 3 free. Registration and pre-payment is required. Call 479-789-5000 to register or for more information.
