House Passes Wild and Scenic Designation for Molalla


The House of Representatives voted yesterday to extend Wild and Scenic protections to Oregon's Molalla River. The Molalla is one of the Willamette River's most important tributaries. Wild and Scenic designation will provide added protection for the river and its fish by recognizing its outstanding natural, cultural and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations. Now the vote will go to the Senate for approval. More info on the Oregonian's website.
