Buffalo National River Needs Your Help in June!
Can you help for just one hour? What kind of help you may ask? Every June help is needed to hand out visitor survey cards at various locations along the Buffalo. It’s just that simple. You smile, greet the visitor and hand them a survey card explaining how important the return of the card is to the future of Buffalo National River. These survey cards help to answer the question as to whether or not visitors understand the national significance of BNR. Do you have an hour sometime in June? You can volunteer in the upper river (Newton County), middle river (Searcy County), or lower river (Marion County). Our Arkansas treasure really does need your help and with just a few minutes of training (or we can provide several minutes) you will be well on your way to making a difference. To volunteer please contact one of the following BNR rangers:
Upper River—Linda Bishop at Steel Creek, 870-861-2570
Middle River—Joyce Umbach at Tyler Bend, 870-439-2502
Lower River—Mike Simpson at Buffalo Point—870-449-4311
