The Missouri Ozarks Heritage Regional River of Words Contest was a student contest for art and poetry that reflected our unique landscape and ecology: our waterways and hillsides, our plants and animals, our caves and springs.
The Bryant Watershed Education Project, an educational nonprofit, in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Conservation, sponsored this regional contest. Our Project was dedicated to bringing all the beauty and complexity of the Ozarks landscape and culture alive for young people. This contest was designed to help them explore the natural history of their homeplace and then to creatively express what they learn.
This is the Web site of the Bryant Watershed
Education Project, based in West Plains, Missouri. Our site is a toolkit
for exploring the Bryant Creek, North Fork, Eleven Point and Upper
Spring watersheds in the southern Missouri Ozarks.
