The Ontonagon River in the Upper Peninsula will be one of 12 stamps to be released in 2019. The Daily Globe in Ironwood reports the stamp shows a branch of the river in Gogebic County.

The newspaper says sections of the Ontonagon River were designated as part of the Wild and Scenic Rivers system in 1992. Forty-three miles are designated as wild, and 35 miles are listed as scenic.

Stamp services director Mary-Anne Penner says stamps highlighting history, entertainment and nature tell “America’s story.”
