Ozark Headwaters Group (OHG)

Check the OHG Facebook Group for the latest news about the Ozark Headwaters Group.

WaterfallThe Ozark Headwaters Group of Sierra Club is one of two groups of the Sierra Club Arkansas Chapter. The Ozark Headwaters Group (OHG) boundaries cover roughly the northwestern half of the state with the sister group, the Central Arkansas Group (CAG) covering the southeastern half. (See map for boundaries.) People who live within OHG boundaries are automatically enrolled in the group when they join the national Sierra Club.

The current OHG membership is made up of approximately 1200 members. General meetings will be announced as they are scheduled. You do not have to be a member of Sierra Club to attend OHG meetings. For more information about the OHG, visit their Facebook Group.
