ARKANSAS, Sebastian County CD – The Sebastian County Conservation District is the first in Arkansas to use drones for pasture and forestry surveys and to also monitor the spread of invasive plants.

With the drone, current maps of land and pastures can be created to benefit both farmers and landowners.

The district also added two newly licensed FAA commercial pilots, Harrison Sears and William Baggett, who both have Part 107 certification.
