More than 10,000 people float the Lower John Day River each year from Clarno to Cottonwood, drawn by its exciting rapids, meandering bends and thriving fishery, which includes wild steelhead, salmon and bull trout. In addition, the Lower John Day River canyons provide habitat for an abundance of wildlife including mule deer, elk, big horn sheep,and antelope.
To ensure that this stretch of federally designated Wild and Scenic River remains the recreation and wildlife haven it is today, the 54,300-acre Lower John Day Wilderness Proposal lands are in need of permanent protection.
With permanent protection, this wildlife and primitive recreation beacon can remain as it is for future generations to enjoy!
