Theo Witsell, Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, asked us to share this. We said, “Of course!” Enjoy the video!
The National Park Service has released a video about the restoration of glade habitat along the Buffalo River which was produced by Terra Fondriest at the Buffalo National River in Arkansas. The video features the work of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission (ANHC) monitoring glade restoration efforts at the Gene Rush Wildlife Management Area adjacent to the Buffalo River. This work is part of a cooperative State Wildlife Grant between the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the National Park Service, and the ANHC to restore degraded (cedar-encroached) glades and improve habitat for a variety of plants and animals. Here is the write-up and link to the video on YouTube:
