Meeting Place: The Education Center
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
What is the only marsupial to live in North America? What animal group is known as a family? Explore some of the fascinating mammals that live in the forest of southern Arkansas. Investigate how these animals live, as well as the traits they share and what makes them different from on another. Also, go back in time to discover how these animals were an important natural resource in the history of South Arkansas. A park interpreter will portray a French fur trader from the past, as we explore the all-important fur trade. Then turn to your creative side and combine art and science by using recycled materials to make animal masks. These materials, especially cardboard, are useful for experimentation and a wide range of artistic creations. Come to the museum and indulge your creative vision, as you make your own unique animal mask. Please call the museum at (870) 725-2877 to reserve your spot.
