LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission's popular Conservation License Plate Program helps outdoorsmen display their love for the outdoors. It also helps the AGFC promote the next generation of outdoors enthusiasts with a specialty license plate featuring their favorite outdoors pursuit.
This year, the AGFC is asking for the public's help in choosing which species best illustrates The Natural State. The choices are: the northern mockingbird, black crappie, prothonotary warbler, American alligator and the mourning dove. Take the survey by July 24 to help choose the animal that will be featured on the 2012 plate. Click here for the survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/conservationlicense.
The AGFC Conservation License Plate Program has raised more than $7 million in funds for scholarships, internships and other AGFC conservation education initiatives since its creation in 2000. The plates have featured game animals from deer to ducks, and even special interest plates, such as a hummingbird and waterfowl retriever.
The license plates cost $35, with $25 going to the AGFC Conservation License Plate Fund and $10 going to the Department of Finance and Administration.
