A huge group of mallards and other species of ducks takes flight from a flooded field between the Cache and White rivers in eastern Arkansas. The White River corridor in The Natural State has long been a haven for fish and game, as well as those who pursue them. On Jan. 9, the White River and its watershed were named a National Blueway because of the area’s value to the state with regard to the economy, recreation and nature.
