The World Peace Wetland Prairie — at 1121 South Duncan Avenue in Fayetteville between 11th Street and 15th Street just northeast of Pinnacle Foods and southwest of Brenda's Bigger Burger — is a city park that is being preserved by the public as a remnant of a rapidly disappearing ecosystem — a natural rain garden and a sanctuary for all living things.

The park is in the Town Branch basin of the West Fork of the White River, which in turn flows into Beaver Lake — the region's major water supply.

Work on helping to shape up this public jewel is encouraged at anytime. Regular organized work dates have moved to an autumn/winter schedule of the last Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Please call 479-444-6072 for details, or log onto www.worldpeacewetlandprairie.com and send a message.
