I am very pro-nature. I see it as art. I photograph nature. (I've done so at glaciers, sand dunes, springs, lakes, coastlines, forests, etc in my travels...) I would like to know what Southeast Arkansas has to offer an eye like mine. I have visited a few times for personal reasons but didn't really have the chance to "get out." I'm going to be living there soon, but in the meantime, would like to know where the most picturesque areas are.
The area seems highly under-documented and I can't get very much info on things like Bayou Bartholemew (its boasted) any great birding areas...are even neat spots to visit if there is a wildflower season. Any help, folks?

NOTE: I am not a hunter...just a nature-loving person.

Several years ago Wife and I took a two day trip following the Arkansas River Levy down to the Mississippi River and really enjoyed it. We saw LOTS of birds of many kinds. Another year I worked on an archeology dig near Gillette and on a couple trips flocks of red birds flew in front of me as thick as a flock of black birds. That was in June. There are lots of bear and other wild life there. I suspect once you learn your way around you will have many photographic opportunities. Good luck and please keep us posted. If you are from out of state; Welcome to The Natural State


I just read your original Thread about moving to P.B. and see you are from "out of state", so, again, welcome to The Natural State.

The terrain is flat but plenty of waterways and forested areas besides the wildlife refuges and national forests. When enjoying nature in southeast Arkansas, do keep an eye out for nature's rattlesnake as they are plentiful in some places.

Yikes ! And I thought it was mostly a desert thing. I completely forgot about snakes

OMG thanks! Leaving Pine Bluff to see Helena-West Helena for the first time, I got to admire massive duck gatherings (for migration) before finally getting back Down to Baton Rouge.

Yes there are huge cotton fields, I picked cotton one year which is NOT fun. Go down to lower Ashley County around Wilmot and Chicot County. Thousands of acres of cotton.
