The Wild Rogue River

The lower “Wild” Rogue River is one of the most stunning watersheds in the United States. While portions of the roadless lands that surround the Rogue were protected in 1978 as the Wild Rogue Wilderness Area, much of this watershed remains unprotected today.

The Wild Rogue provides freshwater habitat to massive ocean-going salmon runs and has a diversity of flora and fauna unmatched nearly anywhere in the Pacific Northwest. This section of river was one of the original eight rivers to be designated as national treasures when Congress passed the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act in 1968.

With the potential for old-growth logging, mining or development threatening this national treasure, now is the time to protect the rest of the Wild Rogue’s roadless lands and free-flowing streams for this and future generations.
