Join American Whitewater on a Trip on the Wild and Scenic Rogue River (OR)
By: Mark Singleton
In June 2015, American Whitewater members will have an opportunity to join American Whitewater staff and board members for an exclusive trip on Oregon’s Rogue River. We invite you to come learn more about what we're up to while having a great time enjoying one of our nation’s first Wild and Scenic Rivers. The trip will give AW an opportunity to share what we are working on and, more importantly, to hear your thoughts about river issues and learn from you how we can advance the work of AW. There are countless meetings and phone conferences throughout the year to get our critical work done so, rather than holding yet another briefing, we wanted to organize a gathering on the rivers we love with people who feel the same way.
The trip, which will take place June 16-19, will be fully outfitted by Northwest Rafting Company with professional guides, exceptional food, transportation to and from Galice, and all equipment. You will have the option of bringing your own boat, renting a boat, or joining as a passenger on one of the rafts. The price for the trip will be $995 with a portion of the trip proceeds going to American Whitewater to support our work. Interested in joining us? Make your reservation directly through Northwest Rafting Company today!
The Wild and Scenic section of the Rogue River in Oregon, which is one of the eight original Wild and Scenic Rivers designated by Congress in 1968. The Rogue River is a great place to link up with old friends, meet some new ones, and learn a little more about the great work being done by American Whitewater.
