Capture your River!
As part of a year-long celebration of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act’s 50th anniversary, the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord Rivers, the River Stewardship Council (SuAsCo RSC) held a photo contest. Thank you to everyone who participated!
The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968 led to the official designation of 29 miles of the Sudbury, Assabet and Concord (SuAsCo) Rivers as Wild & Scenic in 1999, based on their nationally significant scenic, recreational, ecological, and literary values. The 29 miles flow through all or parts of the City of Framingham and Towns of Wayland, Sudbury, Lincoln, Concord, Carlisle, Bedford, and Billerica. These rivers offer a wilderness experience just 20 miles and less than one hour from Boston. Ten of the river miles along the Sudbury and Concord rivers lie within the boundaries of Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, established to protect the outstanding waterfowl habitat associated with the extensive riparian wetlands.
Congratulations to this year's winners, who were celebrated at our October 14th Anniversary Event! Look for their photos online!
