My Kind of Place: The Nooksack

I’ve never been here. But now that I know, I am likely to look for it.

Found:  NooksackWildAndScenic, a river in Washington State. American Rivers, the non-profit river conservation group is seeking federal Wild and Scenic status for the river which has been studied as a candidate for that status. That designation would protect it from rampant development.

American Rivers describes the river as “flowing from the high snow fields and glaciers of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, and the Twin Sisters range in the North Cascades, the Nooksack River system is home to all five types of salmon, bald eagle, black bear, cougar, elk, and many other fish and wildlife.” For more information see: American Rivers.
