The Buffalo National River has been designated a Leave No Trace Gold Standard Site. The honor, awarded to only a handful of parks annually by the national Leave No Trace For Outdoor Ethics, makes the Buffalo National River the sixth National Park Service site to receive the award — and the first in Arkansas.
