Buffalo National River Partners is pleased to be partnering with The Ozark Society in showing the Ozark Society film, First River: How Arkansas Saved a National Treasure. As part of the educational programming of the Buffalo National River Partners, the movie will be shown on Tuesday evening, July 26, at the South Campus of North Arkansas College in Room M143. The movie will begin at 6 p.m. and the location is 1515 Pioneer Drive, Harrison, Arkansas.
This historical documentary produced by The Ozark Society encapsulates a historical timeline of how the Buffalo River became one of the nation’s first protected waterways. The movie highlights the politics and the progression involved with this initiative in the 1970’s. The movie outlines the various figures, organizations, and background that came into play as legislation moved forward in Washington, D.C. for the protected status we now enjoy.
