 As pioneers in conservation, the League of Woman Voters and the Wild and Scenic River Stewardship Council together present the River Stewardship Awards. 

Twenty-nine miles of the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord Rivers have been federally designated as Wild and Scenic Rivers because of their outstandingly remarkable resources including ecology, recreation, scenery, history, and literature. 

The River Steward Award honors unsung heroes within the river communities who are doing their part to promote, preserve and protect the Sudbury, Assabet and Concord Wild and Scenic Rivers today, and for future generations.
