Singer Forest Natural Area, located in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain, primarily consists of a bottomland forest/overflow swamp. Singer Forest is a good representation of the forested wetlands that once occurred throughout this part of Arkansas. Although once common across the Mississippi Alluvial Plain, most forested wetlands have been cleared for agricultural production. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) holds fee title and co-manages this natural area.
