On March 1, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed the Buffalo National River legislation into law. In a November 3, 1972, letter from President Richard Nixon to Dr. Neil Compton, then president of the Ozark Society, Nixon said this, “I warmly congratulate you on your work and I especially applaud your valuable contributions toward the designation of Buffalo River as a part of the National Park System. May you always derive satisfaction from these accomplishments and pride from having had such a salient part in the realization of a foremost national goal.”

Where to Meet: Ponca Low Water Bridge
Time: 9:30 a.m., March 1, 2022

The cost of the shuttle is $180 per vehicle, and remember to identify yourself as a participant in the Ozark Society float when you book your shuttle with Wild Bill. Payment for the shuttle will be made from the individual to Wild Bill.
