In 1972, a historic battle for the Buffalo River ended with the creation of America’s First National River. A beautiful, free flowing stream that exists because many committed citizens believed its value was in its natural state.
“It is simply that the Buffalo National River and its surrounding natural landscape can be our sanctuary, a refuge – at least from time to time – for physocal, mental, and spiritual renewal. A place to be enjoyed, cherished, treasured, and defended. Get to know this river, get informed about anything threatening its integrity, and then do whatever you can to protect and improve it. But work to protect Nature and her gifts, anywhere you can.”
