Like the River, the Ouachita Riverkeeper encompasses two states; Arkansas and Louisiana. Beginning in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas, the Ouachita River flows to join the Tensas and Little Rivers of Louisiana to form the Black River, which then flows into the Red River.
Cheryl Slavant, the designated Riverkeeper, has been actively involved in environmental work for 20 years. She has dealt with air, water and land issues. As president of the board of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network and a member of the board for years, she understands networking and has organized many citizens groups to deal with their particular environmental issues.
