RiverFest 2009 to Celebrate Wild & Scenic Status

According to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers website, the United States has 3,500,000 miles of rivers and, of those, only slightly more than one quarter of one percent (11,434 miles) are designated as Wild & Scenic. We, who live in the SuAsCo basin are very fortunate to have 29 miles of our local rivers so designated and thereby protected for future generations.
This upcoming Saturday, June 13th and Sunday, June 14th, the Sudbury, Assabet, & Concord Wild & Scenic River Stewardship Council will present the 8th Annual RiverFest. RiverFest is a weekend of celebration on and around the rivers. All events are free and open to the public. For more details on their wide variety of programs visit this link
Every river should be so appreciated!
