the Secretary of Agriculture. The Board
selects its own Chairman.
The Board cooperates with Federal agen-
cies, other State agencies, and counties to
inventory and establish a Maryland Scenic
and Wild River System. Agencies within the
Department of Natural Resources are di-
rected to administer the Scenic and Wild
Rivers Program in such a manner that it will
provide wise management of this resource.
The waters and adjacent lands are to be
preserved for their scenic and aesthetic
qualities. Scenic and wild rivers may be
developed to accommodate limited multiple
uses. However, the main objective is to des-
ignate streams which will provide enjoyment
for the general public through a setting of
natural solitude (Natural Resources Article,
sees. 8-401 to 8-404).
By Chapter 612, Acts of 1975, the Board
adopted its present name and had its mem-
bership altered. The Board appoints, with
the advice and consent of the local govern-
ing body, a local scenic and wild river
advisory board for each river included
within the scenic and wild river system. Each
local board consists of seven members of
whom at least two must be residents owning
land contiguous to the scenic or wild river,
two must be residents of the county where
the river flows and who do not own land
contiguous to it, one represents the local
governing body, two represent the appro-
priate soil conservation district. Each local
board selects its own Chairman and reviews
regulations pertaining to each river within
its jurisdiction.
