Arkansas Audubon Society Halberg Ecology Camp

It's that time of year again when we are actively recruiting 11- and 12-year old boys and girls for the two June sessions of the Arkansas Audubon Society Halberg Ecology Camp. The 1st session will be Sunday June 9 until Friday June 14. The 2nd session will begin on Sunday June 16 and end Friday June 21.

This is the 34th year for this incredible, hands-on Ecology Camp.

Each session we are looking for 50 new students who are interested in hands-on natural sciences. Some of those 100 total spots have already been filled. If you know of any 11- or 12-year old youth who are interested in the natural sciences—ornithology, herpetology, mammalogy, aquatic biology, entomology, geology and botany—please make sure they and their families are made aware of this terrific educational opportunity.

The staff consists of 14 instructors who teach in pairs (for example, two ornithology instructors teaching a class of 8-10 students), two co-directors to oversee and coordinate camp activities, an activities director, a full-time registered nurse, and an excellent kitchen staff that serves meals that are both tasty and nutritious. The instructors include high school science teachers, graduate students, college instructors, and working professionals.

We rent the entire Camp Clearfork facilities near Crystal Springs off Highway 270 from the U.S. Forest Service. Camp Clearfork is closed to outsiders during our rental period. Our staff is very security conscious.

Rather than trying to describe everything about the camp to you, I suggest you visit the Ecology Camp website:

Let's Look Out for Each Other

Dave Hammond at 3 Broadmoor reported the theft of a chained up yellow scooter and a Hoverround vehicle that was in his carport. He did make a police report about this theft.

Everyone also needs to be aware of an increase in teenager activity around the neighborhood and park recently. Please be alert and do not hesitate to call 911 if any suspicious activity is seen. Remember that you can call for assistance and remain anonymous.

Please call, even if you are not 100% certain something illegal is happening. Better have the police check it out than to miss an opportunity to keep order.

Broadmoor History Committee

Please join us at the Broadmoor Clubhouse on Saturday, April 20th at 9:30 for coffee & donuts!

We will be starting our dual projects of rewriting our bylaws/bill of assurance and also creating a workable and usable Archive for the History of the Broadmoor Neighborhood.

This is a massive undertaking and many hands make the work lighter! Coffee & Donuts make it lighter also!

Join us for the full two hours or just a part of that time.

Help us sort, bundle and file all the information that has been gathered over the past 64 years! Yep, it has been a long time since the original bill of assurances were issued!

The filing cabinets, books, minutes, plat maps, etc need to be tidied up and organized.

We have been made aware the CALS – Central Arkansas Library System will also archive our information once we get organized. More to come on that later.

The “History Club” will meet the second Saturday of each month at 9:30am until 11:30am. So, join us any month you are available and tell your neighbors. Bring with you ANY printed info from Broadmoor past, any photos, any old directories – anything you think might be of value for the archives.

Hope to see you at the Clubhouse – located in the Park with the main entrance at the walkway between #19 & #21 Belmont Drive.

Thanks and see you there!

From St. Charles Crime Watch

From Det. Brett Stewart of the NW Property Crimes Division: If you see a silver/gray Chrysler 300 with a partial license plate of 036 with unknown letters (covered with a Landers plate cover), please call 911. The driver is wanted for possibly being involved in burglaries in west Little Rock.
Northwest Property Crimes
Office: 501.918.3545
Cell: 501.772.4475
Fax: 501.918.3550

From Fair Park: A person was rear-ended at the light at Fair Park and I-630 this morning. The person who hit him fled the scene in a silver car (perhaps foreign made?) with license #322SHE. Insurance might cover, but this is pretty low (not to mention illegal and dangerous), to flee before exchanging information. Call 911 if you see this one, too!

LRPD Incident Reports Now on Ark. Dem-Gaz Website

Note, you probably must be a subscriber to the newspaper to get this information, but the Democrat-Gazette is now posting crime reports from the Little Rock Police Department daily--or as soon as they receive it from the police.


They include a map of the incidents.

This is especially helpful to find out what the current burglary pattern is. Daytime burglaries move around town based on who has been arrested recently and who is currently out of jail. If we see a cluster developing in Broadmoor, we can expect more burglaries over a one to two week period until the criminals are caught.

Remember-lock your doors, set your alarm, make it look and sound like you are home.

Above all, make sure your neighbors know you and watch out for you. Also, make sure they can see your house and their view is not obstructed by things like bushes.

Always, always, always call 911 when you see something suspicious. The police do not mind. They depend on observant citizens!
