FUNdraiser on the River!
In association with River Dancers rafting company, the Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center is putting on a special FUNdraisier rafting trip!
The Tree of Heaven section of the Klamath River is enjoyed by all and offers a little bit of everything for those seeking to spend a fun day on the river. Fun rapids and riffles, long deep pools for swimming and water play, relaxation, and wildlife viewing.
The Tree of Heaven run is a great introduction to river rafting and is ideal for families with young children.
Look for turtles basking on rocks, herons in a quiet stance on river’s edge, otters playing, and ospreys diving for fish. Don’t feel like paddling? Sit back and relax and bask in the warm summer sun while listening to the currents flow.
What better way to spend a warm sunny day? And all for a great cause!
Snacks will be provided! Bring a water and a bagged lunch. Wear water-shoes and appropriate clothing for swimming and a day full of sunshine! Bring sunscreen that suits your needs.
Please arrive at the Tree of Heaven campground by 9:30 am. There will be a Facebook Event page where participants can self-organize car pooling, or you may contact the Ecology Center for further information.
