Feb. 20, 2019

LITTLE ROCK —  People west of Little Rock may have seen smoke plumes in the air over local landowner Ray Vogelpohl’s  land near the Perry-Pulaski county line, but the small flames producing that smoke were a good thing for the future of wildlife on Vogelpohl’s property. Thanks to a partnership between Vogelpohl’s , the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the Arkansas Forestry Commission, the 24-acre burn was conducted safely and efficiently, hopefully setting the stage for many more to come.
