Planning to visit a wild and scenic river this summer? Take your camera along, and share your best shots!
Co-sponsored by BLM and the River Management Society, the Experience a River Photo Contest will highlight designated wild and scenic rivers managed by the BLM. Photo and video submissions will be accepted through August 31, 2015 for judging. Prizes will be awarded to the top entries, and there is no cost to enter.
President Johnson signed the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 1968 to balance the ongoing development of river corridors with protection of some of our most spectacular streams. The Act currently protects more than 200 rivers in 35 states and Puerto Rico. The BLM has the responsibility of managing 69 Wild and Scenic rivers in 7 states, including more than 2,400 river miles and approximately 1,165,000 acres (19% of the national system).
