A Good Turnout for the Field Trip to South Fork Nature Center, May 19, 2012

Article and photos by Sid Vogelpohl

Standing by the Riddle Cabin at the South Fork Nature Center, Don Richardson and Don Culwell of the Gates Rogers Foundation’s Board, provided a history of the Center as well as future plans.  The Arkansas Native Plant Society field trip, organized by Brent Baker, occurred on May 19th.  Brent helped with a vascular plant inventory for the site which was conducted in 2005.

Participants pause in a bedrock-bottomed stream bed a short distance above Greers Ferry Lake.  A nearby Eastern Hognose Snake, disturbed by all the activity, displayed its head-flattening defense before moving to its safe haven.
