125 Acre Wetland Restored

Posted Saturday May 27, 2017 by wf_admin

A 125 acre Arkansas wetland was restored thanks in part to support from Wildlife Forever. The wetland was destroyed when the dam controlling Smith Lake burst, draining the wetland and destroying the water control structure. The wetland had served as a waterfowl resting area and had also supported a variety of fish species. The dam was rebuilt in partnership with the Sulphur River Chapter of Waterfowl USA and the Arkansas Game & Fish Department, and waterfowl nesting platforms were erected. Two tons of millet was also planted to provide food and cover.
