Partnership Wild and Scenic Rivers (PWSR) Toolkit

This Toolkit was designed by the National Park Service and partners to provide resources for anyone interested in Partnership Wild and Scenic Rivers at any stage of discovery. You may use it as a reference guide for Wild and Scenic designation, a how-to guide for understanding and completing a study, or a cookbook for post-designation success.
