Caption   The Wilson Point cliffs along Arkansas' Buffalo River are lined with fern falls. These occur when water runs down a rock face, creating a microhabitat for moisture-loving plants. At Wilson Point, numerous seeping springs drip upon the sheer St. Clair Limestone cliffs, creating lush hanging gardens of Venus Maidenhair ferns (Adiantum capillus-veneris). The Buffalo National River was the first to be designated a national wild and scenic river by the United States.
