The Nolichucky River Gorge may be one step closer to earning Wild and Scenic River (WSR) designation following an August river trip with RMS members and Nolichucky WSR advocates. Attendees learned more about what a Wild & Scenic Nolichucky Gorge would look like and how it could benefit local communities and affect management decisions. They also discussed updates on the legislative status and where to go from here.
