mrrobinson@audubon.org, 662-252-1155
The Audubon Naturalist Program is designed for educators, conservation professionals, college students, outdoor enthusiasts, and anyone interested in learning more about our natural world. Over a 10-week period (1 day/wk), participants meet at Strawberry Plains for survey courses on our local habitats. From watershed ecology to climate, habitat succession to geology, the Naturalist Program teaches the processes that create and affect our landscape and its inhabitants, while describing their ecological relationships.
Participants will graduate with an understanding of land use change, native vs. exotic species, and an array of topical social and environmental issues relevant to even the novel naturalist. Classes are instructed by leaders in their field, including professional and university biologists, geologists, ecologists, and local experts, who volunteer their time to be part of this unique and valuable program.
Extensive course material will be provided, including eight field guides valued at well over $100.
To register, contact Mitch Robinson at mrrobinson@audubon.org or 662-252-1155.

The Alliance Health Care System team of health care professionals including administrators, staff, physicians, and other health care professionals all pitch in with community and state organizations to make the Eddie Lee Smith Community Health Fair one of the largest health fairs in the state.
In the past, hundreds of community residents have attended the health fair. Each year the health fair focuses on preventive health, health education, physical fitness and nutrition. Attendees are provided basic prescreening health exams free of charge and health staff follows up with necessary health recommendations and appointments. The Alliance Health Care System and all affiliates thanks the entire community for the support you have given over the years and look forward to seeing you at the 14th Annual Eddie Lee Smith Community Health Fair.
