Description: The Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission (ANHC) is responsible for maintaining the most up-to-date and comprehensive source of information concerning the rare plant and animal species, and high-quality natural communities of Arkansas. Systematic analysis of this natural heritage data can be used to identify locations that hold exceptional importance for the state's natural diversity, but that lack formal protection. To protect such tracts of land, the ANHC maintains a System of Natural Areas. Along with comprising remnants of the original natural landscape, lands within the System of Natural Areas provide vital habitat for imperiled plant and animal species.
