AGFC and State Troopers Team Up with Boy Scouts To Clean up the Bayou Meto WMA

AGFC, State Troopers Team Up with Boy Scouts at Bayou Meto WMA. WABBASEKA, Ark. Troy Faughn and Arkansas State Police Sgt. Brad Spurlin came together with Boy Scout Troop 391 to clean up George H. Dunklin Jr. Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area last weekend. Together, they removed more than 36 large bags of trash from the roads, campsites and boat launching areas at the Vallier Access areas of the popular WMA. One unfortunate side-effect of having world-famous duck hunting in the flooded bottomland hardwoods of Bayou Meto is the accumulation of litter during the season. A soda bottle here, and a cigarette butt there add up quickly during the 60 days all eyes are focused on the excitement of duck hunting. Spurlin, he offered a pretty good solution,” said Faughn. “We are extremely thankful for the help in keeping our state’s resources clean,” said Faughn. “All of the young men involved showed great moral character and helped make a difference.” People interested in volunteering for future cleanup efforts are welcome to contact their local AGFC regional office and ask to speak to an enforcement officer or wildlife area manager over the WMA they wish to help.
