Delta Rivers Nature Center
Totally renovated. An Arkansas Game and Fish Commission facility, the center features exhibits that reveal the natural history of Arkansas's Delta region, while hiking trails through 130 acres of woodland "bottoms" give visitors a first-hand look at the vegetation and wildlife characteristic of the area. Other exhibits are a 20,000-gallon oxbow lake aquarium containing native fish species; live snakes, turtles and alligators; and landscaping with wildflowers and other native plants. Other features include short historical and Delta "fly-over" films; preserved specimens of the Delta's birds, mammals and fish; exhibits on hunting and fishing, the changing nature of Delta rivers and the importance of wetlands; and a gift shop stocked with nature-related items.
