Upcoming March Events at Davidsonville
Spring Break Programming
March 23rd from 7:00-8:00pm- Folk Music Campfire Program (Free)
Join park staff for an evening program around the campfire. We’ll bring the past to life, make music, and while away an evening hour by the fire in good company. Meet Park Interpreter Geoffrey at the campground for an interactive program about Davidsonville and the music that is as familiar today as it was 200 years ago.
Meeting Place: Campground Fire Ring
March 24th from 2:00-3:00pm-Black Powder Musketry (Free)
History happens right before your eyes. Come learn about cutting edge technology that was the flintlock musket. Learn how Arkansas residents 200 years ago hunted wildlife to provide food for their families and protected themselves while in dangerous situations.
Meeting Place: Historic Townsite
March 24th from 7:00-8:30pm- Owl Prowl (Free)
Half the park is after dark. Join Park Interpreter Geoffrey at the Visitor Center for a sunset hike and owl prowl around Davidsonville. Learn about the nocturnal hunters who call the park home, listen to their calls, and perhaps catch a glimpse of an owl making its nightly rounds. Please bring flashlights and wear close-toed shoes.
Meeting Place: Visitor Center Parking Lot
March 25th from 1:00-4:00pm- Candle Making Demonstrations: Light up your Sunday and come learn how to make candles as they did during the time of Davidsonville. We’ll talk about wicks, wax, and why flames flickered among many other things as we create light for future park events. For a small fee, participants can take home the candles they help to make.
