Help California Whitewater Rivers Gain Wild and Scenic Designation!

John Gangemi

The Downie River, and its major tributaries including Rattlesnake Creek, Lavezzola Creek, Empire Creek, Red Oak Canyon, Pauley Creek, and Butcher Ranch Creek flow into the North Yuba River near Downieville. These outstanding natural streams are proposed for designation as a federal Wild and Scenic River. Your support is critical to help ensure their designation!
