"Wild and Scenic" Nashua Rivers

Nashua River for web

 

Celebrate! Eleven of eleven communities voted “yes” to accept the Nashua, Squannacook, and Nissitissit Rivers River Stewardship Plan and its recommendation that these rivers be designated as Wild and Scenic Rivers. On September 20th, Congresswoman Niki Tsongas (MA-03) announced that she has introduced a bill to Congress, the Nashua River Wild and Scenic River Act, that is authored by herself and Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster (NH-02) that would add segments of the Nashua, Squannacook, and Nissitissit Rivers to the national Wild and Scenic Rivers System.  A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by MA Senators Markey and Warren, and NH Senators Hassan and Shaheen. View "Nashua, Squannacook, and Nissitissit: Forever Wild & Scenic" video (4 min.).  For more information.  View River Stewardship Plan.
