“Buffalo 101: Get to Know Your National River,” Boone Co. Library, July 25
July 25, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
In the 101st year of the National Park Service, get acquainted with America’s First National River, located right in our backyard! Folk singer Jimmy Driftwood called the Buffalo River, “Arkansas’ gift to the nation, America’s gift to the world,” and those who have experienced its turquoise pools, painted bluff lines, forested wilderness, and moss-laden canyons would likely agree. Get to know the Buffalo and the opportunities that await in The Natural State!
Lauren Ray, a park guide at Buffalo National River, is a northwest Arkansas native and a 2013 graduate of University of the Ozarks in Clarksville. Prior to joining the team at Buffalo National River, Lauren worked for the Illinois River Watershed Partnership (NW Arkansas), Arches National Park (Utah), and Pecos National Historical Park (New Mexico). She’s thrilled to be back home in The Natural State to serve the communities where she grew up.
