Proceeds Benefit The Buffalo River Watershed Alliance
The Buffalo River Watershed Alliance is an all-volunteer, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization which was created in early 2013 in direct response to the discovery that C & H Hog Farm, the first and largest hog CAFO of its kind in Arkansas, had been approved and was near completion at its location on Big Creek, a major Buffalo National River tributary. The Alliance was organized by stakeholders living in the Buffalo River watershed but its supporters span the state and region. We operate without a paid staff and depend on countless volunteer hours provided by our board members and many supporters.
A Tremendous Thank you to our Sponsors
