Grounds and Trails

Outside is a variety of bird-feeding stations set among shrubbery and a gently flowing seep. An interactive state map highlights Arkansas’s natural resources using a laser projector system. The system is funded in part by a grant from the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission.

The location along the Arkansas River allows many watchable wildlife activities within an urban area. Basking water turtles, butterflies and migrating pelicans are common sights. A portion of the Arkansas River Trail crosses the site, offering more options for exploration. The grounds of the center includes beds of native plants found throughout the state.
