Wildflowers with Sharon Haley and Miranda Viney

Wildflowers, dots across our landscape, provide a natural color palette for the Northwest Arkansas region. Do you love looking at flowers in their natural environment and yearn to learn more about them? Would you like to take a wildflower photo walk and get tips on taking pretty pictures?

Please join us at the Hobbs State Park Visitor’s Center to hear noted arborist Sharon Haley share her knowledge of wildflowers growing right here in our region. Esteemed photographer, Miranda Viney, will share basic photography tips on taking beautiful wildflower pictures. Stay for a walking tour of the park to enjoy the day and take photos. We will provide a link to upload your picture for sharing with the class.
