Escape the Black Friday crowds and #OptOutside to a wild river near you! Sen. Ron Wyden is asking Oregonians to help him develop legislation to protect Oregon’s most special rivers, and he wants to hear from YOU. The day after Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to take your family and friends on a hike like Alder Springs along Lower Whychus Creek, then “opt to act”– nominate the desert river you visited for Wild and Scenic River status.
Opt Outside, Act for Desert Rivers
1.) Visit a Wild River
2.) Nominate That River for Protection
While the sounds of wild water are still fresh in your mind, take a moment to write a nomination email to Sen. Wyden and tell him why you think the river or creek you visited should be designated a Wild and Scenic River!
