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.
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 video about the battle to save the Cache years ago and the restoration efforts underway today.
