The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust is beginning a campaign to bring 5,000 acres under its protection in the next three years with Walton Family Foundation support.

A regional land conservation group wants to triple the area under its protection in the next three years to better protect water quality, tourism and the health and diversity of all of the region's living things.
