ar-clarke-and-hempstead-ctyJoin Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission botanist Theo Witsell on a return 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. This will be a spring version of the trip last October. Both of these 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 to reserve a spot and get directions.

Field trips of the Arkansas Native Plant Society are for current and future members. (That’s right: Everyone is welcome!) Botanists from around the state lead these enjoyable and informative walks. If you are planning to attend, please inform the trip leaders in advance so they will know to expect you.  Uncertain of the weather?  Be sure to call the trip leader to confirm.
