Visit one of the land trust’s more remote properties while removing invasive plants from Frog Bayou Preserve
The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust is seeking volunteers to help remove invasive plant species at the Frog Bayou Preserve. Nestled in the Boston Mountains near Winslow, Arkansas, Frog Bayou Preserve is home to retired English professor and poet John Rule. Mr. Rule has lived there since the 1960’s in an off-the-grid homestead.
Frog Bayou Preserve is a unique property that serves as a sanctuary for wildlife and preserves water quality along Frog Bayou. However, non-native invasive plant species are taking over portions of the property, threatening the native riparian habitat nearby. Volunteers will spend the day pulling and cutting invasive plants. Removing these invasive plants will help to protect the riparian area and give native species the chance to establish again.
We hope that you will join us for this volunteer trip to Frog Bayou Preserve. Meet at the Ozark Smokehouse (1725 Smokehouse Trail Fayetteville, AR 72701) at 9am, where we will carpool to the preserve. Tools, drinks and lunch will be provided. We will be back in Fayetteville by 5pm. Please RSVP by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org by March 16.
