What to know
Join Mother Nature as she introduces her many woodland friends at Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area’s “Living Forest.” Listen to each animal’s story. They have a lot to tell us. These educational messages will be easy for young children to understand. Teenagers and adults will learn too! Who are these critters who will be delivering the informative messages? They include a barred owl, deer, spider, bat, blue jays, skunk, raccoon, eagle, squirrel, and more. Costumed Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists will be delivering the meaningful messages. Join in this fun, 40-minute fall treat for the whole family. Strollers and wagons are welcome as you meander along a wide, paved, barrier-free path. If you want to be like Mother Nature’s animal friends, come in costume. Crafts and s’mores will also be available. For more information, contact the park at (479) 789-5000.
