Wild and Scenic Rivers: An American Legacy, published in 2017 by Oregon State University Press, presents an illuminating portrait of the world's premier system for the protection of natural rivers. This book by award-winning author and photographer Tim Palmer reveals the history and essential policies of a unique program and showcases 160 spectacular color photos of designated rivers from all parts of the country.

At this event Tim will show photos and tells stories about this vital rivers initiative. Please join us in celebrating this path-breaking approach to conservation as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 2018.
