Alert: BNR Caves Closed
Bat populations across the US are being killed by "white nose". This disease awakens bats during their normal hybernation period and they starve.
White nose is believed to be spread by cavers. The BNR has closed caving until further notice.
The caves along the Lost Valley trail remain open. Caves along the Buffalo Point trails system are open with the exception of the Bat Cave. NPS Press Release
The Buffalo National River is home to many threatened and endangered species of bats. Help protect them.
A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers but borrowed from his children.
