October 20, 2012, Field Trip to SW AR Blackland Prairies

Arkansas Native Plant Society Field Trip to Southwest Arkansas Blackland Prairies: Saturday, October 20

Join Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission botanist Theo Witsell on a field trip to explore and inventory two of the state’s highest quality blackland prairie remnants.

We will meet at Terre Noire Natural Area near Arkadelphia at 9:30 am.  We’ll break for lunch at Arkadelphia, and then head southwest to The Nature Conservancy’s Columbus Prairie Preserve for the afternoon.  Both sites have been painstakingly restored over many years and are home to many rare plant species.

Come for one, the other, or both sites.  Limit 20 people.  Please call Theo at 501.831.7473 or email theo@arkansasheritage.org to reserve a spot and get directions.
