The Faulkner County Citizens Advisory Group will host a second town hall meeting May 29 for the 60-day anniversary of the Mayflower oil spill.
The group had a town hall meeting on Earth Day this year.
The upcoming event will include a recap of the preview town hall meeting, a review of the current state of affairs and a walking tour of the wetlands impacted by the spill.
There will also be three panels — one with Sierra Club leaders focused on Qualified Settlement Trust and community mobilization, one with affected residents focused on environmental and health issues of concern and another with experts focused on ecological concerns and the wetlands.
The event is open to the public and lunch will be provided. The various activities will be scheduled between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. with an optional Q&A with panels and presenters until 4 p.m.
