Ozarks at Large - KUAF

Hey, I wanted to let folks know about this week's Ozarks at Large program on KUAF featuring interviews of Don E and Chris Fischer. The program focuses on the work being done on the springs and reservations in town. Chris references the ESOA and our work project at Cold Spring. The program aired Friday 4/18 at 6pm, but the program will air again tomorrow, Sunday April 20th at 9am. The program will be archived for access on line soon and we'll try to get a link on the blog.

Kiosk Project

Progress on the kiosk project is coming right along. After two evening work sessions last week, the structure is now standing and has rafters but still needs decking and shingles. Volunteers are meeting Tuesday April 22 at 5:00pm to finish it up.

Land Trust Day Hike

On Sunday April 13, twelve participants met North of Eureka Springs for a hike on a 154-acre land trust. Sites ecountered on the hike included beautiful bluff-lines a "pivot rock" and a running spring. This area could be the site of a future ESOA service project focused on opening up the existing trail by cutting overgrowth and downed trees out of the corridor. The trails are pedestrian only by request of the property owner, so no bikes would be allowed. This could be a great place, close to town, that folks could visit for a little quiet and solitude.
