Must See Monday: Heifer Village

Kerry Kraus


It’s gratifying to know an international organization that contributes so much good to the world we live in is headquartered right here in Little Rock. If you’ve never heard of Heifer or you’ve heard of it but just aren’t sure what they do then you need to plan a visit to their campus downtown.

Located next door to the Clinton Presidential Library in the River Market District, the Heifer International main offices are fascinating for many reasons. It’s a terrific place to learn about sustainability and how simple it can be to lessen our impact on the environment. It also educates about how the program is working to alleviate world hunger and poverty.

Heifer Village has interactive and entertaining exhibits to teach the Heifer principles. Groups of less than 10 can drop-in any time Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Groups larger than that must reserve a group program. There’s also a great gift shop on-site where you can find unusual, one-of-a-kind gifts and a cafe, which emphasizes fresh ingredients grown locally. Whether you come with classmates, family or by yourself, it’s a must see Arkansas destination.
