Longview Saline Natural Area
Longview Saline Natural Area, Ashley County, acquired in cooperation with the Arkansas Field Office of The Nature Conservancy, protects 0.5 miles of the Saline River and a mosaic of rare natural communities that occur in Arkansas’s Coastal Plain, such as saline barrens, Carolina ash sloughs, delta post oak flatwoods, prairie mound woodlands, and pine flatwoods. This natural area continues ANHC’s work to protect habitat for the federally endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis). Two federally endangered mussels, the winged mapleleaf (Quadrula fragosa) and the pink mucket (Lampsilis abrupta), are found within the stretch of the Saline River that borders the natural area.

Hunting regulations are currently being established for this natural area. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will vote on our recommendations in 2013, and the approved regulations will be found in Summer 2013 guidebooks. If you have questions in the meantime please contact ANHC staff.
