For several decades, the Cave Research Foundation has worked with the National Park Service (NPS) on the Buffalo National River in northern Arkansas to document, monitor, and map its over 750 cave and karst features. The Buffalo National River, established in 1972, is popular for camping, hiking, and floating along its 135 miles of unrestricted waterways with picturesque bluff lines.
