ARCATA, CA (June 26, 2023)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Joe Flannery and Kyle Lancaster of Where the Wild Roam production company seek to educate and inform audiences about wildlife and wild places. In their latest project, Wild and Scenic, the duo explores and explain the significance of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act while visiting several watersheds with pending designation legislation.

“The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act was the most important piece of legislation to protect waterways for future generations,” said Lisa Kincaid, Kokatat’s Promotional Marketing Manager.

By raft and packraft, Flannery and Lancaster will explore various protected and yet to be protected watersheds and document their experience while explaining the significance of the legislation and how it relates to the waterway.

Kokatat has provided the team with a full kit of gear to keep them dry and safe during their filming including GORE-TEX Tempest pants, GORE-TEX Pullover jacket, GORE-TEX Paddling Jacket, and Maximus Centurion life vests.

“Just as the Wild and Scenic Rivers act allows us all to enjoy waterways, Kokatat helps us all do so safely and comfortably,” said Flannery.
