Photo Album

photo by Don McDowell, The Nature Conservancy -- in the foreground are trees planted by FWS, the larger tree is home to a bald eagle nest and the standing water is rain water which is caught behind the levee so that once the levee is broken then this water will not be left standing except in high water times.

photo by Don McDowell, The Nature Conservancy -- this is former Refuge manager Kelby Ouchley standing on the north levee explaining to a TNC board member Tommy Barham from Morehouse Parish the plan to remove the levee- they are looking at the cleared floodplain which one day will be bottomland hardwood.

photo by Steve Haase, The Nature Conservancy -- from a plane looking south- the Ouachita River is the river you see, on the left side of the photo is Mollicy farms and the right side is part of the Upper Ouachita National Wildlife refuge which was not cleared- someday the left side will look like the right side.

photo by Richard Martin, The Nature Conservancy -- this is one of the internal canals/ditches and in time all of these will be restored to their more natural flow pattern- you can also see the flood plain.

photo by Richard Martin, The Nature Conservancy -- this again is looking south from the north levee with the flood plain- it was taken after a heavy rain so that more water has been captured inside the levee which again is not natural- normally during low water times that water would flow off but it is being held inside the levees.
