Action Alert! Devil's Postpile of the San Joaquin River

Posted: 02/12/2019
by Evan Stafford

Calling all paddlers who've paddled or aspire to paddle the Devil's Postpile, and who could provide comments for the incredible nature of this section of the Middle Fork San Joaquin River. Comments are needed ASAP and are due on February 15th. Currently, American Whitewater is working with the Forest Service on the Inyo Forest Management Plan Revision. We are working both to ensure the Devil’s Postpile remains included in the inventory of Wild & Scenic eligible rivers and that whitewater boating on this reach is added as an outstandingly remarkable value.
 
 
Please email comments directly to theresa@americanwhitewater.org that demonstrate the Devil’s Postpile is both a unique whitewater river and one that attracts visitors from across the nation.
