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.
