PWSR Toolkit Explore Page

The Explore section of this toolkit is appropriate for those new to WSR designation and takes groups through the process of getting a Wild and Scenic River Study bill introduced and passed through Congress.

The following are key steps for exploring Wild and Scenic River (WSR) designation using the Partnership model (Partnership Wild and Scenic Rivers or PWSRs), from learning about the program to requesting a congressional study. Included below are resources for planning, assessment, outreach and community engagement. As all rivers are unique, please note that these steps can vary from river to river: not all steps are necessary in all cases, they may not be sequential, and they can be iterative as an approach evolves.
