Today is National Arkansas Day – January 11, 2022

National Arkansas Day is January 11 every year, and if you are a native or nature lover, this is one of the days you get to celebrate. Created in 1836, Arkansas is the 25th state to be added to the Federation. It is also called the Wonder State or Natural State because of its numerous parks and water bodies, located near the Mississippi River.
