River Values
=================================

The Omnibus Oregon Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1988 designated 33.8 miles of the North Umpqua as a Recreational River in the National Wild and Scenic River System. That same year, it was designated an Oregon State Scenic Waterway by the Oregon Rivers Initiative.

This portion of the North Umpqua River contains five Outstandingly Remarkable Values . . .
