In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Buffalo National River, Nathan Windel will give an overview of Project Caves and share his knowledge about caves in the Buffalo River Watershed in the meeting room of the Newton County Library on Stone Street in Jasper on Thursday, September 22, 2022, from 5:00-6:00 PM.
This event is sponsored by the Buffalo National Rivers Partners and the Newton County Library. It will also be available virtually by contacting www.newtoncountylibrary.org for this option. Opportunities to explore the Ozarks are plentiful at the Buffalo National River, including over 400 known caves within the Park’s boundaries.
Project CAVES, funded through a grant from the Arkansas Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, brings students from across Arkansas together to learn about and explore caves in a natural setting. The partnership and support from the Park have increased the opportunities and experiences we provide students through Project CAVES.
Nathan Windel lives in Newton County Arkansas, near the headwaters of the Buffalo National River. For the past 15 years, Nathan has been exploring the Park on his own, with his family, and with his students. He has served as the director of Project CAVES since 2017.
Buffalo National River Partners is dedicated to the promotion, appreciation, preservation and protection of the Buffalo National River through volunteer activities, fundraising and educational outreach. This event at the Newton County Library in Jasper is free and open to the public.
