Take a Raft Trip on the Mokelumne River - June 23rd, 2013!


Take a Fun Raft Trip on the Moke!
Join us to raft with OARS on June 23 

Thanks to OARS of Angels Camp, Foothill Conservancy will hold benefit raft trips on the Mokelumne River on Sunday, June 23, 2013. All trips will benefit our efforts to protect the Mokelumne River. The cost is $70 per person and space is limited. The Mokelumne is not yet open to commercial rafting, so this is a rare opportunity for you to experience this Wild and Scenic-eligible river.

The trip is a wonderful introduction to whitewater rafting, with fun rapids, quiet floats, and lots of beautiful river scenery. OARS is one of the nation’s finest rafting outfitters, which means you’ll enjoy high-quality safety equipment and highly skilled professional guides as you float the Moke from Electra to Middle Bar.

We will have trips at noon and 4 pm. They are open to river-lovers from age 6 and up, unless river flows are too high to safely accommodate children (we will let you know). OARS will provide transportation from our meeting spot in Jackson to and from the river. 
 

To reserve a spot on one of these special trips, please e-mail Randy Berg in our office and let him know:

--Your name, address, daytime phone and e-mail
-- Number of seats you’d like to reserve
--Ages of children under 15 in your party, if any
--Your time preference, if any: noon or 4 pm


After Randy confirms receipt of your reservation request, you will need to send us a check for $70 per person to hold your reservation. (Please wait until you have confirmation before mailing your check). He’ll send you more details about the trip then, too.

Be sure to contact Randy soon. We'll reserve seats in the order we receive requests.
