Wild And Scenic Rivers

State: Colorado, Idaho, Montana
Description: The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act represents the highest form of river conservation in the country. 50 years ago, Congress passed the law to conserve iconic rivers and streams and keep them free flowing, protect their water quality and remarkable values such as recreation, fisheries, and surrounding scenery and wildlife habitat. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act now includes over 210 river segments from Maine to Alaska. EcoFlight is using the 50th anniversary of the act to promote the designation of spectacular and threatened river sections deserving Wild & Scenic protection.
