Jim Woodruff recently received the Watershed Guardian Award for the Middle Fork White River from the Beaver Watershed Alliance. Woodruff and his partners have owned and operated their 1,800-acre tree farm for about two decades. On their forested land, Woodruff, his family and friends have undertaken projects to manage dirt road runoff, build ponds, increase nutrient management and test the soil. They have used many increased native plant populations, conducted ecological thinning of the forest, performed controlled burns, and removed invasive plant species as prescribed in his forest and wildlife management plans produced by the Arkansas Forestry Commission and Arkansas Game & Fish Commission.
The Watershed Guardian Award program is a stewardship recognition effort carried out by the Beaver Watershed Alliance awareness and education committee to recognize individuals, businesses, organizations and agencies in the Beaver watershed community who have demonstrated, supported or achieved water quality protection efforts within the Beaver Lake watershed.
