Natural Systems

Granite ecosystems and natural wonders are the basis for the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area.

Fields, forests, wetlands and streams are host to a diversity of trees, shrubs, mosses, lichens and flowers. Some of these are only found in the Heritage Area. Pools of water explode with color on the granite outcrops creating a fireworks display of nature.

The starting points for most nature explorations in the Heritage Area are at Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve or at Panola Mountain State Park.  Both offer guided hikes and the opportunity for passive and active recreation.
