Welcome to Eightmile River!
With over 150 miles of pristine rivers and streams flowing through relatively undeveloped rural land, the Eightmile River Watershed is an exceptional natural and cultural resource. Large areas of unfragmented habitat, an array of rare and diverse wildlife, scenic vistas, high water quality, unimpeded stream flow, and significant cultural features typify the watershed. A locally led campaign to seek Wild & Scenic designation is complete and a Watershed Management Plan has been published.
We are now taking applications to be a RiverSmart Household. This free program helps landowners protect the rivers and streams by adopting Eight Great Backyard Tips.
Households that take the RiverSmart Pledge receive an information packet and a free sign to show your commitment. Your smart actions will help keep the Eightmile River and surrounding watershed and streams healthy and clean. Encourage your neighbors to participate!
