Protect the Ozark National Scenic Riverways from overuse and poor management


The Ozark National Scenic Riverways feature clear water flowing from abundant springs and provide some of the Midwest’s best river recreation to more than one million visitors each year.

However, poor management has led to motor vehicles and horses approaching and entering the river wherever they can, destroying vegetation, and causing severe erosion and pollution.

Unless the National Park Service gives the Riverways the protections afforded to the country’s other national parks, the area’s clean water and rare remote experience will be lost.

Take action:
Tell the National Park Service to protect the Ozark National Scenic Riverways like other national parks.
