Goal:

Improvements in the knowledge of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Action and future applications of Section 7(a) based on increased knowledge of its intent, content, and procedures.

Outcomes:

1. Increase participants’ knowledge of:

  • The protection requirements of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (Act) 
  • The standards and process for evaluating water resources projects subject to review under Section 7(a) of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act
  • Begin to identify potential water resource projects related to Dingell rivers in Oregon and Washington.

Participant's Pre-work:

To achieve the workshop objectives, it is important that each participant reviews the web-based BLM Wild and Scenic River Course of Study, Module #6.

To improve your understanding of the workshop, we suggest that you review several technical reports prepared by the Interagency Wild and Scenic Rivers Coordinating Council (IWSRCC). If you are not already familiar with the IWSRCC, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with their website, www.rivers.gov

We encourage you to find a few minutes to take the 7-question pre-test

At www.rivers.gov please review the following technical reports and charts

Please also review Public Law 116-9, the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act.
