A Montana river trip with Missouri River Canoe Company
allows you to get away from it all on a canoe trip in the Upper Missouri
River Breaks National Monument... The Upper Missouri Wild and Scenic
River corridor is 150 miles of class-one water flowing through a strip of
landscape that has changed very little since the time of the earliest
records describing it. For those seeking a rustic respite from the ordinary,
this national treasure offers a convenient wildness within reasonable reach
of modern amenities.
In the 1980's President Carter signed a proclamation
designating the Missouri River from Fort Benton to the Fred Robinson
bridge as part of the Wild and Scenic Rivers system in the United States. Since that time, very little has changed
concerning management of this resource. In 2001, President Clinton signed a
proclamation designating a large portion of land
surrounding the Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River as the Upper
Missouri River Breaks National Monument. This latter designation gave extra
protection and support to the river corridor, helping preserve the visual
and physical integrity of this world class treasure.
