“On a recent camping & boating trip, I was able to explore the pristine Wekiva River in Central Florida, a National Scenic River. At one point I pulled over to the riverbank and I was delighted to discover the presence of an adult and a juvenile Purple Gallinule... the juvenile had amazing colors and markings, like the adult. The way the sun was hitting, it created a beautiful florescence in the distance, and I knew this scene had to become a painting.” -Peter R. Gerbert
Congress passed the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 1968, establishing the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System to preserve free-flowing rivers for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.
