This is a very special year. On October 2, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations. This year we celebrate it's 50th anniversary. Thanks to the Wild and Scenic Act, the Sudbury, Assabet and Concord Rivers have been protected for future generations. Join the celebration this year. Save these dates and look for more information soon!
On October 14th, from 2-5 pm, join a grand celebration at Minute Man National Historical Park and the Old Manse. We will celebrate "Conservation in Action" with special explorations, raffles and refreshments, followed by a ceremony and remarks by distinguished guests. Check it out.
