Upcoming Events at Davidsonville

The Great Arkansas Clean-Up
Davidsonville Historic State Park
November 2nd, 2019 from 9:00a.m. to 11:30am.
Meeting Place: Visitor Center
Grab a coat and join the staff of Davidsonville for a morning of spring cleaning in November. With the underbrush finally gone, volunteers are needed to delve into the wilder wooded sections of the park and collect trash that is harming the historic and natural resources of the park. Scout, Civic, and other organizations are encouraged to attend, and this is a great opportunity for students or others who need service hours for various causes.
We’ll provide the trash bags, gloves, awesome t-shirts (on a first come, first served basis), and keep you fueled up and warm with hot chocolate and other tasty snacks. RSVPs appreciated so the park has an approximate head-count prior to the day of. Grab your gear, bundle up, and we’ll see you in the park on November the 2nd!

The 4th Annual Thanksgiving Feast
November 16th, 2019
Class and Cooking 1:00-4:00pm
Meal and Clean-Up: 4:00-5:00pm
Let’s get cooking! Join Davidsonville Historic and Crowley’s Ridge State Park staff for a delicious afternoon of outdoor cooking and eating as Thanksgiving draws near. Pioneers relied heavily on both Dutch and Earthen Ovens when they were traveling west to settle the frontier. Learn how to use and care for these ovens as we cook up a Thanksgiving meal to be remembered. We’ll make each and every recipe from scratch, no box mixes, just like grandma used to do and you’ll go home with a laminated cookbook with all the instructions as well. This workshop is suitable for all levels of skill. Space is limited and early registration is required. Call the park to sign-up. Tentative menu included below.
