Organizational History

After a lapse in activity, it was re-organized in 1991 under the leadership of Denele Campbell in order to incorporate another local environmental organization that she was involved with, the Northwest Arkansas Environmental Guardianship. The organization became inactive in 1994 before being again revived in 2015.
