This short film produced for American Whitewater follows paddlers and conservationists Adam and Susan Elliott as they set out to explore the wild rivers of the Olympic Peninsula. These wild rivers give us clean water, world-class recreation and unmatched opportunities for inspiration and solitude. They bring jobs and economic benefits to local communities and provide critical habitat for salmon, steelhead and a variety of other fish and wildlife. Wild and Scenic designation–the strongest protection a river can receive–ensures that the free-flowing character, water quality and outstanding values of these rivers are protected for generations to come.
