Arkansas River Revival runs Oct. 20-29

Arkansas River Revival runs Oct. 20-29

Forty years ago, President Richard Nixon dedicated the Arkansas River Navigation System, which was, at the time, the largest civil works project ever undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Named for its principal advocates, Senator John L. McClellan (Arkansas) and Senator Robert Kerr (Oklahoma), today the system is responsible for nearly $2 billion in trade transportation in Arkansas annually. In addition, the river provides a wealth of unique recreational and outdoor activities for Arkansas communities and families, as well as visitors to The Natural State.

To highlight the need for further economic development, the Arkansas River Connections is hosting the “Arkansas River Revival,” a 10-day flotilla event along the Arkansas River, October 20-29, 2011.
