Meetings, Events, & Projects


Regular meetings occur on a quarterly schedule in various locations across the Ozarks region.  In addition to regular business, meetings include presentations and guest speakers.

Once a year, an annual meeting of the Society of Ozarkian Hillcrofters occurs for socializing and celebration.

Throughout the year, the Society of Ozarkian Hillcrofters meet in support of conservation and preservation projects selected by members and the Board.  These projects meet one or more of our five missions and may include direct involvement by our members.
