Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuge
A River Runs Through It
The restoration of 2,600 acres with nearly 800,000 trees at Upper Ouachita NWR is part of the largest ongoing floodplain restoration project in the nation. With help from the biologists, foresters and managers working at Upper Ouachita NWR, the left side of the river will soon resemble the healthy bottomland hardwood forest on the right.
