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.
