Help Complete the Buffalo River Trail

Volunteers are needed to complete the Buffalo River Trail in the Lower District of the Buffalo National
River. This is a great volunteer project. Ken Smith, a local legend, has devoted much of his life to the
Buffalo River. This final leg of the trail is what remains of a project he began many years ago. Once
completed, the BRT will span the entire 150 miles of the America's first national river.

The American Hiking Society is sponsoring a volunteer trail building project beginning April 11-17, 2010. 
To register for this project, visit the AHS website, or go directly to the project registration link.
