crystal clear waters
soft clouds pass lush green mountains
Sadly our beautiful Buffalo River is being polluted by hog farms moving into the surrounding lands. Despite research showing the harm and voracious protests, the state has continued to grant permits for large scale hog farming. The Buffalo River was once so pristine it was selected as the country’s first National River. Now, it routinely has algae blooms from the excess fertilizer and hog farm runoff. When will we learn?
