NOEL, Mo. (AP) - Tyson Foods has announced a plan to work with the Nature Conservancy to help protect waterways in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas.

The Joplin Globe reported Wednesday that (https://bit.ly/1SnVRhQ ) Tyson presented the conservancy with $500,000 that will go toward conserving water quality in streams and lakes throughout the region. The money will also help fund stream restoration and other efforts along the Elk and Buffalo rivers.

The Nature Conservancy is expected to hire a watershed coordinator for the western Ozarks to manage the activities.

Tyson has eight processing plants in the Missouri-Arkansas region and also owns seven pre-treatment wastewater facilities in the region.
