Month of Giving – November 2021

Month of Giving

15% of 2022 Rafting Trips & Gift Certificate Sales made in November will go local non-profits!

Rivers are not only meant for white water rafting, but are an essential part of our history, ecology, society, and more. Protecting these rivers is no easy task, there are a multitude of amazing non-profits and local communities that make this their mission.

Without these organizations – life, and our rivers, would be a lot different. This holiday season, we want to give back to local non-profits thru our Month of Giving. Throughout the month of November we are donating 15% of sales to either the South Yuba River Citizens League (aka SYRCL) or Protect American River Canyons (aka PARC).

Sharing these places, and having fun is our top priority. Please come join us and let us show you some amazing places!
