Public meetings to focus on dying bottomland hardwoods at Henry Gray Hurricane Lake WMA
BALD KNOB - Roughly 212 acres of hardwood trees on Henry Gray Hurricane Lake Wildlife Management Area have died within the last few months and another 800 acres are showing signs of severe stress. This area within the WMA’s south greentree reservoir is an important habitat component for wintering waterfowl and a popular area with duck hunters searching for flooded hardwood hunting in Arkansas.
The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will hold special public meetings at 7 p.m., Nov. 1 at Searcy High School Cafeteria in Searcy and at 7 p.m., Nov. 8 at Forrest L. Wood Crowley’s Ridge Nature Center in Jonesboro to discuss the most recent developments and future plans for the impacted area.
