GUEST SPEAKER
Writer, Naturalist, Outdoorsman
Larry Dablemont
 
 
Larry Dablemont is owner of Lightnin' Ridge Publications, an active writer, naturalist, photographer, outdoorsman, and publisher. He tells about himself:
"I grew up on the Big Piney river in southern Missouri, and have guided float fishermen since the age of 12 in wooden johnboats my grandfather and father made.
 
I began writing for the Arkansas Democrat newspaper as outdoor editor right out of college. I have a wildlife management degree from Missouri Universtity.

After one year for the Arkansas Democrat I took a job as Chief Naturalist for Arkansas State Parks-- the first one ever in Arkansas. I continued to write a weekly column for the Democrat, and wrote outdoor features for Outdoor Life,, Field and Stream and Sports Afield Magazines.
 
Then I studied Natural areas for the Natural Heritage Commission and moved on to north Arkansas working as a Naturalist for the National Park Service at the Buffalo river. I  switched to writing a weekly column for the Arkansas Gazette about that time.
 
I have my own magazine today, the Lightnin’ Ridge Outdoor Journal. When I come to speak to your group I will give out free issues to anyone who wants them. I have published 10 outdoor books and continue to write a self-syndicated outdoor column for about 40 newspapers in three states."
 
Everyone is welcome to join us to enjoy a great evening with Larry Dablemont!
