PROTECTED PROPERTIES

Osage Creek Gibbs

County: Benton

Size: 53 Acres

Date Conserved: 2014

 

This property is a riparian corridor along Osage Creek, just north of the Illinois River confluence in Siloam Springs, AR. The property is used to raise cattle and includes fertile river bottom farmland. A section of the creek received streambank stabilization and riparian buffer enhancement by Watershed Conservation Resource Center to reduce streambank erosion. In addition, a singular, managed livestock watering access point was established to protect water quality downstream. The protection of the Gibbs property supports the Illinois River Watershed Protection Strategy.
