*River ethics*

Our commitment is to respect our beautiful yet fragile environment. We strongly believe that everyone, including us, can be a powerful force in creating a sustainable future. 

We like that you love it here, but love it like you live here. 


Be aware of fire restrictions

Gather only driftwood for campfires. Be aware of fire restrictions. All fires must be contained in a fire pan. Ash and charcoal packed out.

Choose a licensed and professional rafting outfitter.

When shopping for an outfitter. See how long they have been in business under the current ownership.  Ask them what kind of training their guides have and what government entity manages their outfitters permit and training practices.  This will let you know that you are working with a professional outfitter.


Carry in, carry out

All garbage, ash, charcoal, and trash must be carried out on all portions of the rivers. Even small scraps of food left behind will attract ants, flies, and mice.
