Ark Trail Service Projects

Google map to find Ark Trail

In March of 2018, major flooding impacted the area around Arkabutla lake, importing much detritus onto the property of Ark trail on Hwy 304, about 7 miles west of Hernando, MS.

Dr. Darrell Barnes, in coordination with Coldwater River Nature Conservancy, is organizing some cleanup and maintenance initiatives for the Ark site.

Students from Northwest Mississippi Community college and other local volunteer groups, including church groups, are planning to make some “beautification” through community service at the site, beginning in October of 2018.

  2. I regret not being able to participate with the clean up, but I honestly think this will help in the long run. The community coming to gather to make sure our world stay clean is a great idea. It is an idea I will always support. Please keep up the good work not only for us, but for the nature.

  3. Looking forward coming out with my family tomorrow. My little boy might not be a year old yet but it’s never too early to start instilling a love of nature and conservation into those who follow in our footsteps.

  5. Growing up, me and my fam always went to Arkabutla during the summer. Thank you for what you’re doing!
    Also, growing up I always called it “Arkabutler” and I didn’t know until last year that it’s actually “Arkabutla”…that’s awkward.

  6. I hope the ARK Trail gets cleaned really well, I love nature and to hike on trails with the sound of water nearby.

  7. I believe building an eagle habitation would be an amazing idea. Giving them a safe place to land is vital to their long term survival in our area. Unfortunately, I do not drive so I will be unable to attend clean up. However, I look forward to watching the blog from it!
