Buffalo River Watershed Enhancement Project
The Buffalo River Watershed Enhancement Project, a Regional Conservation Partnership Project (RCPP) project, seeks to collaborate with private landowners to reduce erosion on their land and enhance water quality in the Buffalo River.
As part of the enhancement project, landowners and ag producers in the Buffalo River Watershed are eligible to receive conservation assistance funding to implement conservation practices to help maintain and improve water quality!
Additionally, watershed landowners are eligible for assistance from the project partners aimed at:
- eradicating feral hog populations
- preventing erosion
- managing pastures and unpaved roads in the area
Agricultural producers in the Buffalo River watershed in Baxter, Boone, Madison, Marion, Newton, Pope, Searcy, Stone, and Van Buren counties are eligible for this program.
Although all producers in the Buffalo River watershed are eligible, applications from the sub watersheds of Bear, Big, Brush, Calf, and Tomahawk creeks will be prioritized.
If you're a landowner in the Buffalo River Watershed and are interested in participating, please fill out the form below.
What are the goals and benefits?
We are working to improve water quality in the Buffalo River Watershed area by preventing erosion through managing pastures and unpaved road ways, feral hog eradication, and more.
