Raft the Mokelumne River

Raft the Mokelumne River to benefit the efforts of Foothill Conservancy

On Sunday, July 19, you’ll have the rare opportunity to raft the Mokelumne River with OARS of Angels Camp. OARS will run two, possibly three, special raft trips on the Mokelumne’s six-mile Electra-Middle Bar run to benefit the Foothill Conservancy and support its work to protect and restore the Mokelumne River.

This is a rare opportunity to float the Mokelumne and experience its beauty from river level with knowledgeable guides and professional equipment. Commercial rafting is not allowed on the Mokelumne, so these trips are being allowed under a special permit.

The trip is a fun, Class II-III trip suitable for families and seniors. No prior rafting experience required. There’s plenty of time to relax and enjoy the scenery as well as fun, Class II-III rapids: the Chute, S-Turn, and Devil’s Toilet Bowl. Below the Highway 49 bridge, rafters may see ducks, geese and other wildllife along the river. The entire trip, including transportation to and from the site, should take less than four hours.

Cost is $70 per person and space is limited. Advance reservations are required. We are filling seats on a first come first served basis. Participants must be at least age 7.  Youth under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The trips will be guided and equipped by OARS of Angels Camp, one of the finest whitewater rafting companies in the country. They have fun, knowledgeable guides and well-equipped and maintained rafts.

To reserve your spot, call Randy at Foothill Conservancy, 209.295,4900 or e-mail him at randy@foothillconservancy.org

Be sure to leave your daytime phone number.
