Our nwaas.com Web site is free for all to use, but the Northwest Arkansas Aquarium Society is a REAL aquarium society with so much more to offer. And we hope you’ll join the club!
NWAAS members meet in person every single month to talk about fish and aquariums. Most meetings have a qualified speaker offering a fascinating presentation. We serve refreshments—worth the cost of dues alone—and offer door prizes and giveaways. We close out most meetings with a mini auction of various fish, plants, and supplies—many unavailable in stores. You can get some real steals!
But that’s not all you will get with society membership. Besides meeting a fun and lively group of fellow fish geeks, you will find a very active club. Several times a year we make group excursions. Past examples include native fish collecting trips, visits to aquarium stores in Springfield and Kansas City, a trip to the Oklahoma Aquarium, and a visit to a large, commercial tropical fish hatchery. We also attend auctions, swap meets, and other special events hosted by regional aquarium societies in Missouri and Oklahoma (and host our own, too). Twice a year, we have a gigantic auction of fish, plants, and supplies. You can not only find some fantastic bargains to buy, but you can also sell your own excess livestock and equipment to make a few bucks. And we’re working up ideas for more adventures. Maybe you have an idea to help our club have even more fun.
Everyone is welcome to join! We have members of all ages and all experience levels—from beginners setting up their first tanks, to expert hobbyists who have been keeping fish for decades. We have members who are, or have been, breeders, aquarium store managers or owners, and we even have a member who writes a monthly column for Aquarium Fish International magazine. So come have some fun! Come learn more about fish! And come let us get to know you. Admission to your first meeting is free!
