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.

2015 has been a great year in conservation for Arkansas! Your generous support of our work with partners has made forests more resilient, rivers cleaner, prairies and caves more diverse and drinking water reservoirs and groundwater more secure. Thanks to you, Arkansas’ amazing wildlife has better places to roam, and people are enjoying healthier land and water.
