William B. Clark Conservation Area is a 460-acre natural area along the Wolf River in Fayette County located approximately 1 mile north of Rossville, TN. The natural area protects an un-channelized section of the Wolf River including meanders, sloughs, and bottomland hardwood forests. The river and its sloughs provide excellent habitat for rare and endangered freshwater mussels and other aquatic organisms. A variety of aquatic and terrestrial habitats offer opportunities for observing birds and other wildlife. Examples of un-channelized river and functional bottomland forests have become rare in west Tennessee.
