Governor Mike Huckabee Delta Rivers Nature Center
The Governor Mike Huckabee Delta Rivers Nature Center is an educational facility that allows visitors to learn about the Delta’s heritage, wildlife and ecology in both an indoor setting as well as having easy access to the great outdoors. The center is located on 130 acres in Pine Bluff Regional Park between Lake Pine Bluff and Lake Langhofer. Here you will be able to take a simulated ride over the Delta in our Flyover Exhibit, see how the Arkansas River has changed course over the last 150 years and come to understand the history of the Delta a little better. Wildlife can be seen in our 20,000 gallon aquarium in the form of native fish, turtles and birds. Visitors should also keep a sharp eye out for mounted specimens of local wildlife throughout the main building.
I absolutely love this nature center! It is the best feature that Pine Bluff has. Kids and adults alike can learn so much at this place. It's huge with a vast array of knowledge. The hiking trails are some of the best marked trails that I've ever hiked. Even a novice can navigate through this trail system without a map, but I always prefer to have one on me. Even if you don't have a paper map the trail has "you are here" map posts at most, if not all of the trail intersections. If you live in Pine Bluff or even close you should definitely enjoy a day making memories here. I traveled from Texas to enjoy this park once again.
Would like to go back when I can spend more time walking the trails. Indoor exhibits not huge, but very cool to see the animals and exhibits.
Had the animals I love but not the cream puffs :(
This place is pretty run-down it's obviously seen better days. There are still some pretty fantastic exhibits. If you're looking to teach your children about the dangerous venomous snakes in the area. This is definitely the place for them to learn. They also have two bald eagles which are absolutely beautiful.
Great place to take the kids to teach about nature. Walking trails, Bald Eagles, natural resources to enrich the lives of our children
