Pinnacle Mountain State Park Selected as a Leave No Trace Hot Spot

The Leave No Trace Center has selected Pinnacle Mountain State park outside of Little Rock as one of 12 sites around the country that have been heavily impacted by recreation use. Hot Spots are the focus of a week long visit from the Subaru Traveling Trainers and local trainers to reverse these impacts and improve the park lands to make them healthy again. Pinnacle Mountain SP week of Hot Spot activities begin October 6th and continue to the 12th. Please follow this link for ways you can get involved with the Hot Spot and help protect the park.

Why minimize campfires impacts?Soil life

Did you know that there can be more than 100 species of soil animals living in a handful of soil? Colorado State University soil biologist Diana Wall tells the National Science Foundation that there’s more to life below ground than meets the eye. Follow this link to the National Science Foundation video with Dr. Walls explaning this study:

Don’t Move Firewood

One of the most important things we can do to protect trees in the forest is stop moving invasive pests and diseases to new areas from imported firewood. Campers can accidentally spread invasive species and pests when transporting firewood. It’s really that simple- don't move firewood, and keep trees healthy and alive. The Arkansas Forestry Commission has made a request to the Quapaw Outdoor Ethics Committee to help them promote the message of the hazards of moving firewood.
