Does your fitness program need a little boost now that the summer is winding down?
The Fall edition of Walk Across Arkansas begins September 17 and runs through November 18.
“Over the last decade, thousands of Arkansans have made Walk Across Arkansas their opportunity to start or continue a fitness program,” said Lisa Washburn, associate professor-health, for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
“While we are not really walking across the state, we do have thousands of people across Arkansas who form teams and commit to eight weeks of exercise,” she said. “Many of our participants have credited Walk Across Arkansas with making fitness a permanent part of their daily routine.”
Registration for Walk Across Arkansas opened on September 5.

A public meeting will be held on December 11 concerning the Strawberry River Watershed, according to the Izard County Extension Office.
The forum is for community members to discuss water pollution issues specific to the Strawberry River Watershed. The watershed includes communities in Fulton, Izard, Lawrence and Sharp Counties.
Forum participants will be asked to discuss local water quality concerns, to identify priorities for reducing pollution from runoff and about who should be involved in those efforts. The forum is an extension of an annual stakeholder meeting that the UA Division of Agriculture’s Public Policy Center holds each year in partnership with the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, which is responsible for developing and implementing programs to address nonpoint source water pollution in the state. December’s forum is a local opportunity for people to get engaged in addressing water issues.
The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Ozarka College, Student Center Room AFSC104, 64 College Dr., in Ash Flat.
For more information about the community forum or to RSVP, Call Amanda Philyaw Perez at 501-671-2228 or you can e-mail your RSVP to publicpolicycenter@uaex.edu.
