An Indoor Adventure 

Cold and rainy out? That doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the great outdoors!

"Oh, the weather outside is frightful!" It may not actually be frightful, but winter in The Natural State can be cold and damp. But that just means we move the fun inside!

This January is a great time to visit the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's Nature Centers in the Arkansas Delta.

Check out the Crowley’s Ridge Nature Center in Jonesboro. It’s a fun and insightful way to learn more about Crowley’s Ridge, its geography and topography, and the “critters” that call the region home. Don’t miss the 16-minute film, complete with special effects and animation, which explains the formation of the ridge. Hands-on exhibits tell the story of the plants and wildlife that call the area home.

The Delta Rivers Nature Center in Pine Bluff gives visitors the opportunity to learn more about the Arkansas Delta. A favorite feature is the 20,000-gallon oxbow lake aquarium filled with native fish. You’ll find exhibits explaining the natural history of the Arkansas Delta, live critters (turtles, gators and snakes…OH, MY!), and a movie that takes you on a “fly-over” of the Arkansas Delta in a crop duster. At the River Rat House Boat Theater, the 10-minute movie allows visitors to discover the experiences that the first explorers endured through the wilderness of Arkansas.

There’s always something fun and educational going on at these nature centers. For more information, visit www.deltarivers.com and www.crowleysridge.org.
