October 20th was a very busy day at SFNC; not only did the Clinton Cub Scouts come out, but the Little Rock Walking Club and the Little Rock Sierra Club joined the monthly guided tour with Docents Larry Bintliff, Bob and Joyce Hartmann and Steve Smith.

There were discussions on the history of the nature center, plus change in leaf color. There was interest in the rock signs that were painted by Joyce Hartmann. Joyce also taught eveyone how to whittle and paint “Ozark Colored Pencils”

After a lunch break, hikers made their way to the waterfall and found “old” graffiti on rocks above the waterfall, dated 1841 J.C. The date was chiseled on the floor of the creek about 50-75 feet above the falls, a nice surprise find.
