Nate Rangel, President of Raft California, is an eagle scout himself. Nate owes much of his love for the rivers of California to the years he spent as an Eagle Scout in Troop 54 from Mar Vista in Southern California. He is dedicated to sharing the magic of those rivers with the youth of our great state.  To that end, we provide discounted trips to Boy and Girl Scout groups all summer long.
