DLAMN Terre Noire
This area is located in the Coastal Plain, is one of the highest quality blackland prairies and woodland complexes remaining in the state. The site is a mosaic of native herbaceous and woody vegetation that includes high-quality prairie as well as prairie in various stages of restoration. It also includes wooded areas that illustrate the forest and woodland matrix within which the prairie openings existed in Southwestern Arkansas. The site is home to a number of rare plant and animal species. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) shares ownership with ANHC on portions of the area.
