The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the highest level of protection for waterways, is 50! As the Act celebrates a half century of protecting some of our greatest rivers, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating its accomplishments—and in working for its future. Just a few miles away, Deep Creek flows from the Flat Tops to join the Colorado River at the beginning of Glenwood Canyon. This rugged, untamed creek flows through a narrow, steep canyon that drops over 4,000 feet before its confluence with the Colorado.
Wilderness Workshop and American Rivers invite the community to celebrate and learn more about this important conservation tool.
