1968. A year of profound change & progress in environmental protection & on October 2, 1968, the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.

There are approximately 3.6 million miles of streams in the United States; 1.1 million are at least five miles in length. Only 12,734 miles are protected by the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act—only 0.35% of the rivers found here.But what a wonderful 12,734 miles! Allagash. Salmon. Snake. Missouri. Concord. Fortymile. Trinity. AND in our back yard The Obed! As the Act nears a half century of protecting some of our greatest rivers, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating its accomplishments—and in working for its future.
