In the end,
we will conserve only what we love,
we will love only what we understand,
we will understand only what we are taught.

-Senegalese Proverb

 


Over the past ten years, the National Park Service and members of Congress have supported a community-based approach.

Since there are few properties on the Upper Taunton River protected by state, local or federal governments, a grassroots community effort is the only means of obtaining a wild and scenic designation. In the past, most rivers added to the Wild and Scenic River System have been on public lands.

Why Community Support is Important

WHAT YOU CAN DO!

"Never doubt that a handful of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
