Factory farms do not bring opportunity. They bring destruction. Agricultural practices have been radically altered over the past four decades as industrial-scale production processes have come to small-town America and traditional U.S. farming communities. Nowhere is this rapid, negative change more obvious and more destructive than the creation of massive concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) now polluting communities all across the nation. Air quality is ruined. Well water is contaminated. Waterways are impaired. And the quality of life for America’s rural residents is put at-riskfor long-term harm.


Right now, this threat is growing for the Buffalo National River. Moves are being made in Little Rock that would jeopardize the health & safety of America’s ‘First National River’ – and the communities and economies of the residents who call the Buffalo their home. Come learn what’s next for the fight to preserve the Buffalo River -- and how you can make a difference.


This event is sponsored by Buffalo River Watershed Alliance & Socially Responsible Agricultural Project
