Scotch Broom, so pretty, is in fact a noxious weed, very aggressive and highly invasive.

River Dancers, the River Exchange and the US Forest Service present the 5th annual Sacramento River Restoration Rafting Adventure.
Join us for an all-day rafting adventure down the beautiful Upper Sacramento River Canyon for some very exciting whitewater and Scotch Broom eradication.
Scotch Broom was used to pack whiskey bottles shipped to California during the Gold Rush, the bubble wrap of the 19th century if you will. Seedpods attached to the package material could sprout during the winter rains or lay dormant for up to 50 years.
Just as mom said… drinking’s bad, not just for you but for the environment as well!
Cost is $50 per person
Ages: 12 and up
Bring water and lunch.
All river gear will be provided by River Dancers. Tools will be provided by the USFS.

When someone asks me where my “happy place” is, I immediately answer the river.
River rafting has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I have fallen completely in love with being on the river.
River guiding combines all of my favorite elements into one outstanding experience. Not only do I spend my days on the rivers I love, but I also have the opportunity to meet and share my passion for rafting and nature with a wide variety of people.
What I love most about whitewater river rafting is the complete immersion into nature I experience as soon as I relax into the flow of the river.
As a guide, I hope to inspire others with my appreciation of the river and all the gifts nature has to offer us. The river is a unique intersection between civilization and complete wilderness, combining the thrills of rafting with panoramic views and incredible wildlife.
By guiding, my goal is to encourage a continued appreciation for this amazing environment so that the river continues to inspire young adults, such as myself, to get involved in outdoor recreation and conservation.
