JONESBORO, AR - The city of Jonesboro Parks and Recreation Dept. will hold an informational meeting on Friday (July 25) at the Forest L. Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center (600 East Lawson Rd.) from noon until 1:30 p.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to present results of a conservation study that was conducted by the city, Arkansas State University and the Nature Converancy.  The study used geographical information system to prioritize parcels of land for conservation and recreation.
