“For 15 years, Central Arkansas Naturalist members have educated the public and introduced kids to the wonders of nature and the responsibility we all share in caring for it,” said Davis Thompson with the organizaiton. “[Our] volunteers have built trails, provided housing for birds, monitored the quality of rivers and lakes, picked up litter, removed invasive species, grown and planted native plants, and provided educated citizen scientists.”
The organization, which started in 2006, has donated more than 26,000 hours of support to keeping Arkansas beautiful.
