Why the Wild and Scenic Rogue River remains wild and scenic
In 2018 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. In 2019 we should be celebrating the completion of the management plans for the eight rivers that were designated as the initial components of the national Wild and Scenic Rivers System. But a designation as a Wild and Scenic River is mostly just a name on a piece of paper. So what assures us that, as time passes, the rivers continue to qualify for this lofty honor? That assurance comes (or fails to) from the way the rivers, especially including the adjacent land areas, are managed, day by day.
Our beloved Rogue River was one of the eight rivers that were included in the Act. And our own Al Grapel was the planner who led the development of the management plan for the Rogue. Al will describe what was involved, including the major controversies and some of the interesting situations, during the preparation of the plan.
