Our work preserving the Buffalo River Watershed

Watershed Protection

Preserving water quality

By working with local landowners to ensure that their property remains wild and undeveloped, we help protect the water quality in the Buffalo River watershed. Water quality is an especially important consideration in this area because tourism and recreation on the Buffalo is a major economic driver for North Central Arkansas.

Buffalo River Foundation preserves large tracts of untouched wilderness.

Wilderness Preservation

Protecting natural habitats

Buffalo River Foundation is focused on preserving wild and scenic lands in their natural state. We have identified several threatened or endangered plant and animal species on our preserved properties, highlighting the importance of leaving those lands untouched.
