Save the Gentry Safari Support Rally was an overwhelming success.

Leon welcomed everyone that came to have a great afternoon, kids of all ages, over 1,600 friends of the awesome Drive through Wildlife Safari.

The message for AEP and SWEPCO is clear: stay out of the Safari, this is not just a piece of land, it is the best park in Arkansas that belongs to Gentry and NWA, as visitors come from many states to be with nature, friends and wildlife. The closest to Africa most of us will ever be.

Seeing high voltage towers 160 feet tall, ugly conductors traversing the beautiful natural views and hearing the noise of the line is not what we want for Park 4.

Move the lines away from our park – you have no right to take away the natural habitat of the many animals, it has been their home for many years and the legacy of a wonderful family that built the park one rock at a time and taken care of the hundreds of thousands of visitors to the park.
