Lurton, AR – Richland Creek Great Arkansas Cleanup

Date(s): 09/26/2015
Times: 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Arkansas Wildlife Federation is hosting a Richland Creek Cleanup in the Ozark National Forest on Saturday, September 26, 2015. This event is part of a cooperative habitat work weekend at Bearcat Hollow WMA in Lurton, Arkansas.

The area is located 45 miles north of Russellville (or 25 miles south of Jasper) off Highway 7 at Lurton.  Turn on Highway 123, travel 2 miles, turn right onto Hampton Road and travel to Round Hill field (watch for AR Wildlife Federation logo signs along the way).

The September 26 work day will begin with an early breakfast cooked over an open fire followed by the cleanup/building activities around 9:00 a.m.  The work activities will include campground and stream cleanup, plantings in the wildlife habitat and installation of wood duck boxes, bird and bat houses with events concluding around 2:00 p.m..  Volunteers will be rewarded with another outdoor cookout around dinner time!

Trash bags and cotton gloves will be provided, but you might want to bring your own work gloves and boots.

Volunteers are encouraged to join us to clean this beautiful natural treasure of Arkansas.
