PWSR Toolkit Study Page

Welcome to the “STUDY” section of the PWSR Toolkit. Partnership Wild and Scenic River (PWSR) studies evaluate and document eligibility, suitability, and support for river designation into the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System.

Information on this page is geared for groups undertaking Congressionally authorized Wild and Scenic River (WSR) studies using the Partnership model that is used for rivers that flow through predominantly non-federally owned lands. This “Study Phase” follows the extensive organizing, outreach, and community engagement that was likely undertaken to get a Wild and Scenic River Study Bill introduced and passed by Congress (see the “Explore” page of the PWSR Toolkit for guidance on that earlier phase to authorize a PWSR Study).
