This November marks the anniversary for three Partnership Wild and Scenic Rivers: the Lamprey, Lower Delaware, and Westfield Rivers
The Lamprey River Watershed is one of the largest in New Hampshire with a drainage area that covers almost 214 square miles.
Flowing along the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the Lower Delaware has a total of 67.3 miles designated.
Part of what makes the Westfield so special is that it's located in the largest roadless wilderness area in Massachusetts.
