Kings River Oxbow Restoration

Kings River Oxbow Restoration

| views

The natural course and riparian corridor of the Kings River have been significantly modified over several decades, leading to channel instability and decreased habitat and water quality. The Arkansas chapter of The Nature Conservancy has been working on a large scale restoration project on the river to help reduce sedimentation and improve habitat for several species. Located along a favorite spot for canoeists, the restoration site spans one half of a mile in length. By eliminating tens of thousands of tons of sediment from entering the river annually, the project will improve both habitat and river quality. Thank you to the Southeast Aquatic Resources Partnership, Tyson Foods, Inc., and the Walmart Stormwater Compliance Program for making this project possible.
