Arkansas Native Plant & Wildlife Center
Director:  Tommy Young, Master Falconer & Ornithologist

The almost 3-acre Arkansas Native Plant and Wildlife Center was founded by Tommy Young for his injured animals while they are recovering.  The Center is also equipped for breeding and serves as an educational center for visitors.

Animals with permanent injuries or disabilities are housed in a natural setting for educational purposes at the Center.  The facility is located at the base of Rich Mountain at the intersection of Hwy 270 and Hwy 272.  It is closed to visitors during the winter months and opens in April.  The Center receives no funds from local, state or federal government agencies, and is totally dependent on donations of supporters.
