Rafting the Mokelumne River June 27

Thanks to OARS of Angels Camp, we’ll be running three raft trips on the beautiful Mokelumne River on Sunday, June 27.

This is a rare opportunity to float the Mokelumne, a beautiful, historic river eligible for designation as a National Wild and Scenic River. Commercial trips are not yet available on this river, and the only way to see most of it below Highway 49 is from a raft or kayak.

Last year’s trips were very popular and sold out fast. This year is no exception, seats are going fast, we only have 10 seats still available.

The trips float just under six miles of the Electra-Middle Bar reach of the Mokelumne River, from east of Highway 49 to the 1912 historic Middle Bar Bridge. Along the way, you’ll have a nice easy float with a few fun, splashy rapids thrown in for a good river rafting experience. It’s a great trip for families and seniors. No experience is required, and the trip is fine for children as young as age 7.

Trips will be held at 8 am, noon, and 4 pm. The entire trip, including transportation to and from the river, takes about three hours.

The Mokelumne trips will feature the top-notch professional equipment and expert guides of OARS, a pioneer in commercial river rafting. They’ll make sure you’re safe and enjoy your trip!

On the way to Middle Bar, you’ll enjoy the beauty of the river and likely see some waterfowl as you listen to the songbirds in the willows and enjoy the shade of the overhanging oaks. Even on a hot day, the
river is cool and refreshing! Everyone who came on our trips last year had a fantastic time.

The cost of the trips is $70 per person. To reserve your spot, call
Randy at 209-295-4900 (weekday mornings) or e-mail him at randy@foothillconservancy.org.

Be sure to let him know the number of people in your party and their ages if under 18, and give him a daytime telephone number so that he can get back to you with more details.

Proceeds benefit Foothill Conservancy’s efforts to protect and restore the Mokelumne River.

Don’t wait to call! They’re going fast!
