Upcoming Events: Environmental Workshops & More
ANHC's staff is active in the Arkansas conservation
community. As part of our mission to increase the ecoliteracy of Arkansans, we participate in a variety of events, programs, and professional meetings. Our state-wide outreach programming includes workshops, hands-on presentations and field trips for students, teachers, scout groups, libraries, and conservation organizations. Our Calendar of Events features educational presentations such as teacher workshops, commission meetings, environmental education programs, conferences, and special events from ANHC and our partners.
Led by the Organization BatConservation, with close collaboration from Bat Conservation International and the US Forest Service, a broad coalition of private and public partners is working together to celebrate bats during National Bat Week, October 26 to November 2. Kick off the week by participating in a new, national public action campaign called "Save the Bats," designed to inspire Americans to become involved in protecting these important animals.
