Mitchell is a U of A Honors College senior majoring in crop, soil and environmental sciences. He’s known across the state as an “extreme birder” and has awards for his contributions to wildlife preservation.  At 17 he ranked No.4 in Arkansas for “most birds seen in AR during a Big Year”. At 20, he helped band and document the rare northern saw-whet owl; seen rarely in AR since 1955.  He’s a truly engaging, friendly young man who will share his journeys into the wilderness and advocacy for bird habitat preservation. Everyone will enjoy his absolutely breath-taking nature photography, too!

Join OLLI as we celebrate Arkansas’ outstanding young leaders and meet Mitchell Pruitt. The event is free and open to the public. RSVP preferred, not required.
