New page, new resources! Check out our new "a la carte" resource page, and the new short book "Public Rights on Rivers in Colorado." Other states are coming soon! #Rivers #RiverAccess #ForeverFree http://www.nationalrivers.org/products-and-resources/

At the most basic level, a river is navigable and should be open for public recreation if it is big enough for a kayak (or small boat) to go down. "Rivers that are navigable in fact are navigable in law." -US Supreme Court #RiverAccess

Did you know? Only about 1/4 of 1% of the nation’s rivers are in the Wild and Scenic system. There are segments of 203 rivers totaling about 12,600 miles (Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968). By comparison, there are more than 75,000 large dams in the U.S., covering over 600,000 miles of river. #RiverConservation #RiverAccess

State supporting river cleanup and conservation on the #AlafiaRiver. "The state's Department of Agriculture is working with farmers to implement practices that will reduce the amount of water they use, the stormwater runoff they create and the amounts of fertilizer used on strawberries, other row crops and trees." #FloridaNews

True of false? Designation by a government agency or legislature is not necessary for a river to be considered navigable. #RiverLaw

Fill in the blank: I would be overjoyed if the (blank) section of the (blank) river/creek was unhindered for river access and usage. #ForeverFree #Rivers
