Red-shouldered hawk hunts from willow tree on Pinnacle Foods' wet prairie adjacent to World Peace Wetland Prairie on January 21, 2009

Please click on image to ENLARGE view of red-shouldered hawk on Pinnacle Prairie, adjacent to World Peace Wetland Prairie in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The hawk is perched in a willow tree on alert for small birds and mammals on the prairie.

World Peace Wetland Prairie and Pinnacle Prairie water flows to Beaver Lake through the Soup Branch, a small tributary of the Town Branch of the West Fork of the White River.
The soil in this area allows most of the water to soak in and to be cleansed before it leaves the prairie acreage and protects the lake from siltation and other kinds of pollution.
For more information about Beaver Lake, please see the link in the list at right for the recently revived Web site of the Association for Beaver Lake Environment.
