BLM OR Wild and Scenic River Corridor Polygon

Frequently-asked questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title:
BLM OR Wild and Scenic River Corridor Polygon

Abstract:
wsrcorr_poly: This layer is the polygon representation of the Wild and Scenic River Corridors on BLM managed lands within Oregon. The National Wild and Scenic Rivers System was created by Congress in 1968 to preserve certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition. For more information about the WSR Act, river classification, management, and links to related sites go to http://www.rivers.gov/rivers/.
