The Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub is hosting a mobile makerspace in Springdale this month. Free classes and workshops will be offered through Nov. 23 at the space, which is located at 302 Holcomb Street.

Today Pete talks with Jane Maginot, a County Extension Agent from the University of Arkansas, about Northwest Arkansas' waterways and an upcoming litter clean-up event.

The clean-up will take place this Saturday, October 26th, in Prairie Grove, Elm Springs, Farmington, and Springdale and will target creeks that are not regularly targetted for clean-up. The clean-up will take place from 10 AM to 12 PM, and volunteers should wear water-appropriate clothes and shoes. Clean-up supplies, such as gloves and trash bags, will be provided.

Often Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is seen as a Mexican equivalent of Halloween. But thanks to community organization and an art exhibit from the Arts Center of the Ozarks in Springdale many are finding renewed interest in the holiday and its cultural significance, especially outside of Mexico.
