Government Shutdown Effects Buffalo National River

Posted by on October 1, 2013

Here are the Facebook posts from the staff of the Buffalo National River Prior to its Facebook and Twitter postings going off-line

Quoted from
Because of the federal government shutdown this National Park Service Facebook page is inactive. We’ll start the conversation again when we get back.
As you’re undoubtedly aware, there is potential for a government shutdown beginning at midnight if Congress is unable to pass a Continuing Resolution.

In the event of a shutdown, Buffalo National River will be closed to the public. Even our website and FB page will be disabled.

Visitors who are staying in park campgrounds will be notified of the shutdown (if it occurs) by noon tomorrow. They will be informed that they have 48 hours to vacate the park. All campers must leave the park by noon on Thursday. This 48-hour grace period only applies to visitors who are already staying in the park at the time the shutdown occurs.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that Congress will reach a last minute agreement and shutdown can be avoided. If shutdown occurs, it will hopefully be brief. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and support. [tmg]
