Hobbs State Park Hosts Mother Nature

Mother Nature herself has become a frequent visitor to Hobbs State Park Conservation Area lobby. She visits the park every second Saturday of the month and reads nature stories to her little followers. Readings begin at 10:30 a.m. Admission is free.

Story time is followed by "hands-on" nature-craft activities. Children of all ages are welcome, however, most stories target children, 3-6 years of age.

Mother Nature Reading Dates: Jan. 13 -- The Woods in Winter; Feb. 10 -- Backyard Birds; Mar. 10 -- The Night Sky; April 14 -- Signs of Spring.

Located on Arkansas Hwy. 12 just east of the Hwy. 12 and War Eagle Road intersection. For more information, call 479-789-5000.
