The Faulkner County Library welcomes master naturalist, Nancy Deckard at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 23.

Nancy will describe the process of becoming an Arkansas Master Naturalist. You will learn more about the Natural State and master naturalists and about some of their key projects. Nancy will also address "Beginning birding," so come and learn how to get started as a birder.

Nancy and her husband moved to Arkansas from Texas and soon fell in love with the area. They quickly became involved with the Arkansas Master Naturalist program, and Nancy is the communications director for the Central Arkansas chapter.
