Welcome to the AGRED Foundation

Who Are We?

The American Gamebird Research Education & Development (AGRED) Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that now privately owns Lake Erling, located in beautiful Lafayette County, Arkansas. We endeavor to ensure that Lake Erling remains a relaxing and enjoyable place for residents in the surrounding communities. AGRED’s primary objective is to preserve and conserve the habitat in and around Lake Erling for the wildlife, birdlife, and fish.

AGRED in the News:

On June 23rd the AGFC very kindly donated 177,200 fingerling Large Mouth Florida Bass to The AGRED Foundation for Lake Erling. I would like to personally thank the AGFC on behalf of The AGRED Foundation and the community that enjoys Lake Erling. It is through this great cooperation between AGFC commission and The AGRED Foundation that things can only get better for everyone. Not only have they released these fish into the lake but they diligently conducted surveys on many fish species important to the sport fisherman they have also conducted an alligator survey and determined that one tag will be issued for the next alligator season.

The AGRED Foundation is going to start a four foot draw down of the lake starting beginning of July. Primary objective for the draw down is to conduct repairs on the emergency concrete spillway and repair to erosion located at the siphon pipes.

As always, we appreciate the public support and continue to make Lake Erling a better place for all to enjoy.
