The Wetlands is designed to showcase wildlife and river life in a restored wetlands habitat for the education and enjoyment of millions of national and international visitors to the Clinton Presidential Park and Library. The Wetlands is the result of collaboration among The City of Little Rock, Audubon Arkansas, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, the Williams J. Clinton Foundation and the City Parks Conservancy.
