Environmental coverage

What’s Arkansas's energy future? Is hog manure polluting the Buffalo River watershed? Is the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality doing all it can to fulfill its mission to protect the environment? ANNN wants to explore these and more crucial questions in an extending reporting project.

Donate now to double your impact! If ANNN can raise $10,000 for this project by April 15, a charitable fund at the Arkansas Community Foundation will put another $10,000 toward environmental coverage.

Put "environment" in the special instructions field when you donate via PayPal, or in the memo line of your check if you're mailing your contribution.
