Arkansas Ozarks Waterkeeper, Inc. Board Members

Founding Directors Lin Wellford, Carol Bitting, Terri Bitting, Glenda Allison and Teresa Turk

Strong activist roots and a commitment to preserving and protecting water quality were the primary motivation behind establishing a Waterkeeper organization for the waterways of Northwest Arkansas.  Our members recognize the need for a dedicated effort by concerned citizens to ensure that our precious and beloved waterways remain healthy enough to support a robust fish population, a safe place to swim and recreate and an asset to the communities that enjoy them.  


Arkansas Ozark Waterkeeper's mission is to protect the public health and natural resources through advocacy, education, and research.
