To educate, preserve, protect, and promote water quality and recreation of the Jacks
Fork River and watershed.
Public meetings were held in 2003 in Eminence, Shannon County, to get public input
and ownership of plans for protecting the quality of water in the Jacks Fork. As
a result, a watershed partnership was formed which intends to implements several
strategies for reducing the bacteria to the river. This group is holding monthly
meetings in Eminence.
