This Land Is Our Land: A Tribute to our Wild & Scenic Rivers

Rivers flow through the heart of the nation. They have been the trails of explorers, the inspiration of artists, and the conduits of kinship and commerce. Rivers have carried us, fed us and lit our world. As conservationist John Muir once famously said, “The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.” 

In short, rivers make us come alive. They keep us wild.   

We’re now sitting back and celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act—an incredible step toward protecting the nation’s 3.5 million mils of rivers. But even though we’re 50 years downstream, less than 1/4 of 1% of our nation’s rivers are protected the by Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. 

We at ROW Adventures believe that at the heart of all conservation efforts lies, well, the heart. With that belief, we encourage you to go out and fall in love. To see the nation’s best wild and scenic rivers, experience the heady rush only a wild river’s liquid alchemy can provide and emerge transformed. 

This land is Our land. See it. Love it. Protect it.
