Nooksack Wild and Scenic Campaign
The Nooksack River flows from the North Cascade Mountains in northwestern Washington State westward to the salty Salish Sea. A locally led effort is underway to designate sections and tributaries of the Nooksack as a Wild and Scenic River.
The national Wild and Scenic River System was established in 1968 with the passage of the Wild and Scenic River's Act. Wild and Scenic designation was developed to protect our nation's last, best free-flowing rivers. Recognition under this federal legislation is the strongest tool available to permanently protect remaining wild rivers such as the Nooksack.
