Are you looking for a Christmas gift for a hunter, angler or conservationist in the family? Or maybe you’re looking for a way to help the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission conserve and enhance the state’s wilderness. Luckily, there’s a way for you to do both at once with the AGFC’s yearly conservation license plates.
Each year, the AGFC produces a special run of vehicle license plates with beautifully illustrated, outdoors-inspired artwork. This year’s plate features an award-winning artwork of a longear sunfish, and while it’s available now, stocks are running out, and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
The license plate costs an additional $35 over standard registration costs, with $25 of it going directly to the AGFC. The funding from these plates goes to fund a wide range of programs dedicated to conservation education, such as the AGFC’s Conservation Scholarship Program, which provides tuition assistance to any Arkansas student in a major associated with conservation.
Since it began in 2000, the Conservation License Plate Program has generated $18 million in funding for conservation education, bringing in upwards of $1 million every year since 2008.
