Nature of the Area
Bayou deView, flowing through parts of Woodruff, Monroe and Prairie Counties of northeastern Arkansas, is formerly a river that has now become a swampy bayou due to channelization for agricultural production that occurred many years ago. The area is dense vegetation in the form of Tupelo, Bald Cypress, Hickory, Pine and other native trees of the hardwood and softwood families. The bayou sits among some of the largest remaining natural bottomland hardwood forests in North America, and is home to many species of wild animals including black bears, beavers, cougars, armadillos, possums, raccoons, deer and others. It is also the natural home to water moccasins, copperheads and timber rattlesnakes, as well as several species of watersnakes including the diamond back, banded, broadbanded and common watersnakes, all of which can be found in abundance, though they are usually very docile and timid. Most recently, Bayou deView has gained international notariety because of sightings of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, a large and beautiful bird thought to have been extinct for over 60 years due to deforestation by the timber industry.
