A special 3-hour block of “Exploring Arkansas” episodes will air Sunday, December 18 starting at 12:30 p.m.  If you have always wanted to pick Chuck’s outdoor savvy brain, here’s your chance!  Starting at 12:30, you can watch “Chuck’s Top 10 Favorite Places”, then at 1:30 “Exploring Arkansas’s National Parks” followed at 2:30 by “Exploring Arkansas’s National Wildlife Refuges”.  Get ready to lace up those hiking shoes!  Check out Chuck’s blog where you can find more information in his own words about these episodes.

I am particularly smitten with Wildlife Refuges – the peace and quiet of this show and a conservation story not well known to many of us….it’s definitely worth a look.  And no matter how long you have resided in this wonderful natural state or are a semi-newbie like me, you can ALWAYS learn about a new place or piece of beauty to explore from Chuck’s more than 30 yeas of outdoor experience. 

So grab that handful of trail mix and water bottle and prepare yourself.  If you are so inclined, take some notes and plan some road trips around the state…for yourself and your family – use Chuck and “Exploring Arkansas” to get a free pass to some of the best family time (or alone time) you’ll ever have.  Here's a sneak peek at his favorite wintertime places...just in time!  

And here’s the cool thing – if you know an outdoor fanatic (or if you are reading this on your way to hike, a cliff to hang glide or are tying on a fishing line this may be for you), you can purchase these DVDs in our online store and support AETN and public broadcasting at the same time!  

Check out our “Exploring Arkansas” page for more information including the ability to watch previous episodes – and check back early Spring four our expanded website that will help you plan for your next trip and allow you to search by what you want to do in a certain region, season, activity, or geography.…let AETN be your guide to the outdoors in Arkansas, right from your keyboard.
