The Arkansas River Watershed Collaborative (ARWC)  grew out of the process of wildfire and its  effects  on water and communities. As fires  in the Arkansas River Basin and across the state were becoming more intense and frequent, the need for organized community and agency partnerships to address impacts and preserve the health of our watersheds became clear and urgent.  ARWC is a response to these growing needs and a home for community-driven forest health, watershed health and post-fire collaborative efforts.
