Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature
can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other
requirements of present and future generations.
The "three pillars" theory (or "Triple Bottom Line") of sustainability accounts for social, environmental, and economic demands, balancing
the importance of People, the Planet and Profit.
Better understand the benefits of using low impact development in our communities
and how it can help prevent common stormwater problems associated with the mid 20th
century approach to stormwater management.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources and Conservation
Service (NRCS), has provided funding for the University of Arkansas System Division
of Agriculture, to integrate the efforts of the Arkansas Discovery Farms and the Arkansas
Soil Health Alliance. Our goal is to educate a statewide network of participants through
a series of no-cost virtual research-based, interactive demonstrations and educational
This series of Soil & Water Conservation Virtual Field Trips (VFTs), focuses on the
conservation benefits our researchers have developed with respect to water quality,
irrigation water use, climate change, soil health, profitability and sustainability
through their partnership with farmers on selected farms including some farmers involved
in the Arkansas Discovery Farms Program.
At no cost to high school science teachers, lesson guides that meet the Arkansas Department
of Education's Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) framework are created and
made available for this series.
Check out our Virtual Field Trip page to access free lesson guides and register for upcoming VFTs.
A rain barrel on your property can be a fun and rewarding opportunity!
Rain barrels are storage containers placed in areas where runoff flows from impervious
surfaces during a rainfall event, such as a roof gutter outflow point.
The stored water in the rain barrel can then serve specific purposes. For example,
you can use rain barrel water to irrigate your home garden and flower beds or wash
Rain barrels can be purchased relatively inexpensively (less than $100) from home
improvement stores, or you can even construct your own.
Learn how to build a rain barrel.

2021 Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)
The Buffalo River Watershed Enhancement Project, an 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 agricultural 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 and managing pastures and unpaved roads
in the area.
Learn more about this project and how it can help you!
We are looking for landowners in the Buffalo Watershed. If you're interested in participating
please fill out the form below.
