Lorance Creek Gets Much Needed Improvements

Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission - Tuesday, July 21, 2015


In 1989, the first lands were purchased in what would become Lorance Creek Natural Area. ANHC and The Nature Conservancy worked together to acquire the open water, cypress-tupelo swamp that is bordered by a network of small streams and seeps.


Using environmentally sensitive construction techniques, a portion of the natural area was developed to include a parking lot, paved foot-trail, interpretive panels, and a boardwalk into the swamp. Both the foot-trail and boardwalk are universally accessible. The trail begins at the parking lot and takes visitors through an upland pine-oak forest, into bottomland and an open water tupelo-bald cypress forest and swamp.
