Stateline Sand Ponds Natural Area, located in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain, is a wooded tract composed of a mix of forest types set within an almost completely cleared agricultural landscape. The natural area includes ancient sand dune/pond complexes, floodplains, terraces, and associated landforms of the Pleistocene Mississippi River and present day Black and Little Black Rivers. It represents one of the last remaining areas of habitat for the federally endangered pondberry in this corner of the state and is a portion of a larger 1,500 acre conservation site that extends south and west into Arkansas and north and east into Missouri.
