Take an Online Tour of the Buffalo, America’s First National River


Congress designated the Buffalo as America’s first national river back in 1972; today, it remains one of the last undammed rivers in the country. In recent months, NPCA has helped protect its sensitive waters by taking legal action against an unprecedented factory farm that sits on a major tributary of the river. These photos showcase the stunning landscape that supporters like you are helping to preserve. (If you haven’t already, you can visit NPCA’s website to tell Cargill Chairman Gregory Page to relocate this farm to a more appropriate part of the state, away from the Buffalo’s pristine waters.)

Each month, NPCA puts together a slideshow exploring one of the 401 amazing sites in our National Park System. To get the featured park delivered to your inbox each month, sign up for Park Lines, NPCA’s newsletter.
