The Arkansas Water Resource Center noted in its Fall 2022 publication Arkansas Water News that the Watershed Conservation Resource Center (“WCRC”) was the recipient of the Arkansas State Conservationist’s Partnership Award.
The award was announced at the Arkansas Association of Conservation District’s meeting on August 12th in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The award is described as recognizing:
. . . a non-federal partner organization who made outstanding contributions to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service’s programs, accomplishments, and mission in Arkansas.
The award is stated to have been issued to WCRC for its watershed assessment, planning, and restoration work in the West Fork of the White River Watershed. The Arkansas Water News article also describes this work as including:
. . . working with over 14 partners to successfully implement the WFWR Watershed Initiative RCPP, utilizing EQIP and the PL5-566 watershed program to demonstrate natural channel and ecologically-based design principles to restore streams, riparian areas, and wet depressions to protect landowner properties, reduce watershed-scale erosion, prevent thousands of tons of sediment from entering the WFWR and Beaver Lake watersheds annually, and restore both aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
The WCRC is nonprofit organization based in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
