Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge

Near the confluence of the Saline and Ouachita Rivers in southern Arkansas, Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge protects and manages approximately 50,000 acres of prime bottomland hardwood forest, one of the world’s most biologically productive habitats. The oaks and other bottomland trees on this 65,000-acre refuge produce prodigious amounts of fruit that attract and sustain Wild Turkeys, White-tailed Deer, Northern River Otters, Common Gray and Red Foxes, Bobcats, American Beavers, squirrels, and Common Raccoons. Along the edges of the bottomlands, pine forests support large numbers of endangered Red-cockaded Woodpeckers; both Barred Owls and Eastern Screech-Owls are common in the swamps. Fishing is permitted, except during the winter waterfowl season.
