The first of four free nature centers built by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission with revenue from Amendment 75, a one-eighth of one percent statewide sales tax passed in 1996.
The Governor Mike Huckabee Delta Rivers Nature Center was designed as if it were a waterfowl hunting lodge set among Pine Bluff Regional Park's Delta bottomland, Lake Langhofer and Black Dog Bayou. The Delta and its rivers are the star attractions, and exhibits vividly describe how meandering waterways have changed this land and why swamps are incredibly valuable ecosystems. A model of the Arkansas River reveals how oxbow lakes form. A simulated crop duster flight buzzes fertile fields. A short film follows Hernando De Soto’s early trek through forbidding land. Hides and bones are part of a hands-on laboratory. Those are just a few examples of what’s inside.
