Location: Arkansas

The worlds longest bayou, Bayou Bartholomew, flows for 300 miles through southeast Arkansas. While the bayou and its watershed have escaped many of the negative effects of channelization so common in other parts of the delta, this riparian area still suffers from previous deforestation and agriculturalization. This multi-year Bayou Bartholomew Alliance project intends to reduce sediment runoff, improve aquatic and terrestrial habitat, and restore the regions diverse native tree species. Bayou Bartholomew also provides important habitat for many endangered, threatened, and sensitive species like American alligator, alligator snapping turtle, and bald eagle. They continued the project in 2001 with the planting of 370,700 trees.
