Join us for this free field tour at City Rock Bluff on the White River, near Calico Rock, Arkansas. Explore these fascinating glade ecosystems on public and private lands, learn how they are currently being restored and managed using prescribed fire and other treatments, and what this means for eastern collared lizards, rare plants, and more!

Expect many opportunities for networking and sharing your experiences and lessons learned.
