Cossatot River State Park Natural Area II

Year Planted: 1994

Trees Planted: 34,013
Location: Arkansas

The Cossatot River State Park and Natural Area (CRSPNA) will be managed to protect and enhance the primitive, natural and aesthetic character of the area including the naturally occurring hardwood forests, as well as threatened habitats of game and non-game species. The site, originally a commercial pine plantation owned by the Weyerhauser Company, was purchased by the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission and is managed by Arkansas State Parks. The state park is home to the Cossatot River, recently designated as a wild and scenic river. The remaining 34,000 seedlings and saplings were planted in spring of 1994 with the help of local volunteers. The major benefits provided were improved aesthetic quality of the park, improved management of watershed protection activities, improved bio-diversity, aid in soil and water conservation and improved potential of educational and interpretive programs.
