Major achievements there included working with NPS planners on development of visitor facilities at Erbie and Tyler Bend; planning and construction of 80 miles of hiking trail and designation of a system of horse trails; and returning lands within the legislated “Private Use Zone” (Boxley and Richland Valleys) to private ownership, subject to appropriate protective easements.

Battling for the Buffalo: Controlling the Fate of the Ozarks's Rivers
Tuesday, February 25, 2020
5:30 PM- 6:30 PM
Boone County Library
Speaker: Brooks Blevins
The fight to preserve free-flowing rivers is often portrayed as a battle between the proponents of dams on one side and environmentalists on the other. But in “Battling for the Buffalo”, Blevins explores the creation of national river systems in the Ozarks from the perspective of the landowners who found themselves caught in the middle of this battle.
A native of the Arkansas Ozarks, Brooks Blevins is the Noel Boyd Professor of Ozarks Studies at Missouri State University. He is the author or editor of nine books, including A History of the Ozarks, Volume 1: The Old Ozarks and A History of the Ozarks, Volume 2: The Conflicted Ozarks.
