A dynamic, 10-minute multimedia presentation filmed in high definition – is one of the center’s highlights. It appears on a large screen that 60 people can view. The movie also features closed captioning for the hearing impaired. Each member of the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame is featured between showings. The show also focuses on the AGFC and the role it plays in conservation.
After the show, visitors can pass through an old trapper’s cabin, which appears nestled in the woods.
Visitors will follow water as it passes through a continuous series of living habitat exhibits – from a replicated mountain spring into the river’s main channel cypress swamps, delta marshlands and a bottomland hardwood forest. Each segment has been isolated with flow-through barriers that contain each habitat’s population of fish.
A lounge area offers visitors a chance to pick up a map, select brochures and sit down with a view of the Arkansas River.
