Map Atlas of the Mississippi Scenic Riverway - August 2000
The Map Atlas was created by DNR Waters as a supplement to the Mississippi Scenic Riverway Plan. It contains many colored maps that were used in the analysis of the outstanding scenic, recreational, natural, historical, and scientific values of the river. The maps were used in the planning process and writing of the plan to aid in decision-making on boundary and land use district changes.
