Congress has specified in some Wild and Scenic River designations, that rivers are to be administered by the Secretary of the Interior through the National Parks Service in partnership with local governments, councils, watershed groups and non-governmental organizations, generally through the use of cooperative agreements. In these ‘Partnership’ Wild and Scenic Rivers communities protect their own outstanding rivers and river-related resources through a collaborative approach.
Partnership Wild and Scenic Rivers are a unique category of designated rivers managed through long-term partnerships between the National Park Service and community, local, regional, and state stakeholders.
