Community Spotlight: Anthropolgy Open House

Feb 12, 2018

Have you ever wanted to unravel the mysteries of our past? To dig through ancient ruins? To crack a whip like Indiana Jones? 

Okay, the Indiana Jones stuff might not happen, but the University of Arkansas Department of Anthropology has an opportunity for all the wannabe archeologists and explorers out there.

With temperatures steadily dropping, most Arkansans are retreating indoors for the winter. Still, the Natural state never runs out of activities, even in chilly conditions. And, as Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette outdoor reporter Flip Putthoff explains, fishing is one of the best reasons to step outside this winter. 

Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists has helped conserve Arkansas' natural habitat for more than a decade. From assisting state park maintenance to educating the community on environmental preservation, the group offers vital information and opportunities for anyone interested in the outdoors. 

The Ozark Natural Science Center, located between Eureka Springs and Huntsville, has been a leading resource in nature eduction for 27 years. The ONSC provides classes mostly for grade-school kids, but also offers adult field courses and facility rentals. The center sits in the middle of 15,000 acres of wildlife management area for students to explore and learn about nature in the Ozarks.
