Middle Fork Snoqualmie and Pratt Wild and Scenic Rivers Comprehensive River Management Plan

Additional Project Information

The Pratt River and a segment of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest were designated as additions to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System in the Carl Levin and Howard P. Buck McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (P.L. 113-291 2013 Dec. 19, 2015). Enacted in 1968, the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (16 U.S.C. 1271-1278) preserves selected rivers and their immediate environments in free-flowing conditions in order to protect them for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Act requires river-administering agencies and other federal agencies to protect and enhance the values for which the river was designated. A final detailed boundary is developed during the planning process for developing the CRMP and integrated in the Land and Resource Management Plan for the National Forest.
