River Network and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) are excited to announce the fourth year of funding for nonprofit organizations working on stewardship activities on USFS administered Wild and Scenic Rivers (WSR) and surrounding lands. The goal of this funding is to support a shared stewardship approach, between local groups and the USFS, encourage broader constituency engagement in conservation efforts and ensure the protection of designated rivers and streams.
