The Buffalo River Watershed Alliance was created in the winter of 2013 in order to halt completion of C & H Hog Farm, located adjacent to Big Creek, a major tributary of the Buffalo National River. Unfortunately, this 6,500 animal factory farm was approved without public notice or public comment. The good news is that, thanks to seven years of dogged efforts of those who care deeply for the Buffalo, including a $6.2 million buyout brokered by Governor Asa Hutchinson, C&H permanently ceased operations in January, 2020. However, our work is not over and BRWA continues to strive for permanent protection of the Buffalo.
Your donation is used for our legal fund as well as for advocacy and education of the public and legislators and decision makers regarding the potential environmental and public health risks posed by CAFOs in the Buffalo National River watershed and to promote practices which will lead to improvement of the water quality of the river.
