Protecting Arkansas for Future Generations
The Nature Conservancy created the Arkansas chapter in 1982 and, since then, we’ve helped protect over 250,000 acres of ecologically rich wetlands, threatened native prairies, caves, forests and waterways. From using prescribed fire to restore forests, to diving deep into the underground wilderness of Arkansas’ caves, we’re protecting The Nature State for people and nature.
Conservancy staff and partners are working to improve unpaved roads across Arkansas, which helps clean our water.
During the past three years, Arkansas fire managers have been helping The Nature Conservancy’s Africa program and its partners with prescribed fire management planning.
Thanks to the generosity and support of many Conservancy members and partners, four new places around Arkansas will remain wild and conserved for people to use for generations to come.
The story of conservation in the lower Cache River is one of ecological setbacks, protection victories and painstaking restoration. Watch this historical account of the lower Cache and its re-engineered flow.
