Buffalo National River and the Ozark Highlands Trail Association to Celebrate National Trails Day on June 4, 2016

On Saturday, June 4, Buffalo National River and the Ozarks Highlands Trail Association (OHTA) will be partnering to celebrate the American Hiking Society's National Trails Day®! This annual event is meant to introduce hikers, new and experienced alike, to local trails and public lands. This day is also intended to connect people with an interest in public lands to hiking and trail organizations.

In honor of National Trails Day, Buffalo National River will launch the new "Adopt A Trail" program at10 amin the Tyler Bend Pavilion. Come learn how you can adopt a park trail and help the park care for it. Then join the rangers for a guided hike and learn about other Centennial events happening in the park this year. Bring a sack lunch and eat with us in the Tyler Bend Pavilion afterwards.

After lunch the OHTA will go to Grinders Ferry and dedicate a wooden foot bridge on the Buffalo River Trail. Following the dedication the Little Buffalo River Band will play back at the Tyler Bend Pavilion starting at2 pm. This will be followed by a BBQ dinner and guitar picking that evening. All are welcome to join!
