Daffodil Daze is a new project to beautify the Tucker Creek trail and other areas in Conway with the seasonal yellow flowers. The committee is also encouraging others to plant daffodils throughout the city at businesses, schools, churches, etc.

The idea, which originated with Donna Evans, has grown into the creation of a Daffodil Daze Committee, which includes representatives of the Faulkner County Master Gardeners, the City of Conway and 501 LIFE.
