We are an Arkansas non-profit organization devoted to creating a forum where individuals, groups, and governmental agencies can work together to preserve, restore and enhance these beautiful rivers.
Our goal is to educate our membership and the general public about the activities that are affecting these rivers and the watershed of the North Fork and Central White River in order to have a meaningful voice in determining their future.

Does Your Favorite Streambank Resemble These?
Streambanks with accelerated erosion rates provide poor quality wildlife habitat and can contribute excessive amounts of sediment and nutrients loadings within watersheds. Restoring unstable streams improves water quality by reducing sediment and nutrient loadings within watersheds, while providing multiple benefits to the community by 1) improving the local ecology, 2) creating more recreation opportunities, 3) reducing land loss, 4) protecting infrastructure, and 5) addressing safety concerns.
Sandi Formica, Executive Director, of the Watershed Conservation Resource Center will be our keynote speaker. Several stream restoration projects implemented by the Watershed Conservation Resource Center in the Ozark Mountain region will be presented at our meeting. The projects range from six months to seven years old and are located in both urban and rural environments. Techniques used to restore stream channels and riparian areas will be discussed including practices used to restore the native vegetation at project sites.
