Raft the River

August 21st, 2021
Fruita, CO
Mark your calendars and join us on August 21, 2021 from 3:00~7:30pm for our annual Raft the River float trip and dinner!
We'll be floating from Rimrock Adventures to the Loma Boat Ramp, and enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, and prizes at Rimrock Adventure's riverside venue after the float. Dinner is provided by the generosity of local businesses. 
We typically spend about 2 hours on the water and stop along the way to hear from guest speakers (as pictured below).  You'll have plenty of opportunities to talk with local river experts and explore past, current, and future riverside restoration sites and reclaimed wildlife areas. Discussions may also include the tamarisk beetle, endangered fish, and working with and engaging youth in river restoration.  
After spending a lovely day on the river, we will hop on a shuttle back to where we started at Rimrock Adventures for dinner, drinks, wine, beer, live music from Tim+Richard, and prizes. This is our favorite day of the year - don't miss it!
This is event is limited to the first 40 people!
General Admission: $88
RiversEdge West Members: $75
Here are some things past attendees have said about the event:
"Friendly people, great vibe, nice music, and food afterward in a beautiful location, and we learned new information about the river too!"
"Great food, beer, and music in an ideal setting. I have always enjoyed Tim and Richard and The Copper Club and here they were supporting the Raft the River on a beautiful day on the Colorado."
"The perfect package of fun, education, and first-hand experience on our river. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!"
"The food and rafting plus post rafting fun were outstanding. The event organization was stellar. Thank you!"
"The experience was both fun and enlightening. The event was well planned from beginning to end."
"I want to thank you for arranging the Raft the River trip! It was certainly an educational trip! I hope my brain can retain what I learned about the Colorado River, information pertaining to tamarisk trees, beetles, Russian olive trees, willows, plus other native and non-native plants and fish. Rimrock provided us with awesome navigators and food served in a beautiful location following the raft adventure. It was nice meeting people who are interested in our outdoor world along the Colorado River Valley."
