975 Acres Added To Cypress Bayou WMA

Raft Creek

Thanks to a partnership with The Trust for Public Land and the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has added 975 acres of access for hunters to Cypress Bayou Wildlife Management Area in White County, boosting that WMA to approximately 2,638 acres of publicly accessible wildlife habitat.

The property, much of which had already been enrolled in the Wetland Reserve Program, was initially purchased by TPL with the intention of ultimately being sold to the AGFC once funding could be allocated. The purchase was then conveyed to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission in two transactions, the second of which was completed last Friday.

Stacey Shankle with TPL says the land’s proximity to Little Rock made it an excellent fit for their mission.    MORE
