Protecting Arkansas for Future Generations
The Nature Conservancy’s Arkansas chapter began in 1982 and, since then, we’ve worked with many partners to conserve over 300,000 acres of forests, woodlands, prairies, caves, and dozens of river miles. From using prescribed fire to restore woodlands, to diving deep into the underground wilderness of Arkansas’ caves, we’re conserving The Nature State for nature and people to use and enjoy.
Restoration along the Cache River is in full swing and moving fast.
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.
Our staff and partners are developing a range-wide plan to protect shortleaf pine systems, home to the Red-cockaded woodpecker.
The story of conservation in the lower Cache River is one of ecological setbacks, protection victories and painstaking restoration. Watch this video about the battle to save the Cache years ago and the restoration efforts underway today.
