Crystal clear water flows from this spring located in Cave Springs at the Illinois River Watershed Partnership's latest project at Lake Keith. As we walked around the Lake, we enjoyed learning about the history of this Lake located on Main Street that thousands of people pass every day on their way to the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport.
Many years ago, this spring water supplied the water to the Cave Springs residents. The cave behind the spring is full of Arkansas bats.
In later years, it had a trout farm, a swimming pool, a skating rink and the man-made lake filled with trout.
It was great to see people fishing and paddling canoes around the lake.
I'm thankful for the dedication of organizations like the Illinois River Watershed Partnership and the Arkansas Game and Fish that are working together to preserve our beautiful habitats and educate others about our precious natural resources.
