The Arkansas Ecological Services Field Office is involved in a variety of outreach opportunities. The Arkansas Field Office staff is available to provide endangered species or conservation programs to school, community, or scout groups as resources and staffing permit.  The opportunity to interact with the future of conservation is always welcome!

We also have a birding unit resource with classroom binoculars, field guides, and cameras available for check out and environmental education books that we would be glad to loan. Please contact us with your educational needs.
