Meridian Institute

National Blueways Task Force

Related: Environment and Natural Resources, Resilience

With support from the Walton Family Foundation, Meridian Institute facilitated a small group to discuss a proposed National Blueways System. The  National Blueways System was intended to be a new mechanism for recognizing nationally or regionally significant rivers and their watersheds, particularly those with highly valued economic, regional, social, and ecological assets.
The group convened a series of meetings, in-person and by teleconference, to generate ideas regarding the National Blueways System designation process, anticipated benefits, designation criteria, and general scope and direction of the initiative.
