The application deadline is coming up May 31 for the Rivershed Society of B.C.’s annual rafting adventure down the Fraser River.
The trip is part of the society’s Sustainable Living Leadership program which focuses on improving and maintaining the health of the Fraser River.
For three weeks July 31 to Aug. 24 this summer participants will make their way down the Fraser River from the headwaters near Mount Robson to Vancouver.
They will travel by canoe and shuttle van between Mount Robson and Williams Lake, and by raft from Williams Lake to Vancouver.
Participants paddle and camp out along the way while learning about sustainable living, watersheds, salmon, food security, resource use and how to lower your eco-footprint. Team building, conflict resolution, communication and critical thinking skills are an integral part of the program.
The Rivershed Society is looking for passionate advocates interested in restoring, improving and maintaining the health of the Fraser River Basin.
People interested in applying for the trip can contact the Rivershed Society of B.C. at www.rivershed.com.
