Video: The “Wild and Scenic” Snake River in “Legacy”

“Legacy” — new video from American Rivers, gives a nod to the beauty of the Snake River and efforts to keep it that way.

From American Rivers:

“‘My job was to enjoy this beautiful country, and give back for what it had given to me. And doing the Wild & Scenic bill and being involved in all the things here, I felt like I accomplished that.’ – Jack Dennis

We would certainly agree, which is why we made this short film featuring a thoughtful conversation with legendary fly fishing guide Jack Dennis about his involvement, and the efforts of late Senator Craig Thomas, American Rivers, and its partners, in designating the Upper Snake River Headwaters in Wyoming as one of the nation’s most comprehensive Wild & Scenic Rivers.

Through this film, you can experience a small taste of the beauty of the Snake near Jackson, as well as feel the joy between Jack and his grandson as they ply the currents of this beautiful stretch of water. And as he says about the experience of working on more than 400 miles of Wild & Scenic protections for the river, ‘It was the most satisfying thing, outside of family, that I have ever done.’ Thanks, Jack.

Our goal with this film is to celebrate this important success and inspire people to protect more Wild and Scenic rivers, with an eye toward the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 2018. I hope you enjoy the film, and if you would like to promote it through your networks or publications, we would greatly appreciate it.”
