What we're about

Open Door Outreach is a terrific group for volunteerism, community involvement, and friendship! ODO is secular, nonpolitical, and open to everyone. There are no membership fees and no charges to attend any meetups; any donations are entirely optional. On the first Monday of each month, we meet to plan and learn about volunteer and community activities --and we also enjoy great people and great conversation! However, attending the monthly meetings is not required, we have numerous get togethers each month for participating in various types of volunteer, community, and fun social activities. So... this is a great Meetup spot for anyone who enjoys fun, friendship, and helping the community. :)

Fourche Creek cleanup at Benny Craig Park

Benny Craig Park

Weather permitting, this event is held every second Saturday. Let's team up with a few people from Central Arkansas Master Naturalists and clean out the 100 foot floating trash booms on Fourche Creek near Benny Craig Park. You do not have to bring a kayak or canoe, but if you can, that would help. Those without a watercraft of some sort can help clean the banks. Open Door Outreach will provide litter grabbers, gloves, trash bags. Bring your own water, snacks, etc. If you have large buckets, containers, laundry baskets to place the trash into, please bring those. Any help you can give is very much appreciated!
