Sandy River Rafting Trip

9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, May 7

Join Northwest River Guides & Metro for a rafting adventure on the lower Sandy River (Class 1 + = moving water & riffles, no rapids). Our journey will take us through the ancient forest of Oxbow Regional Park, where giant cedar trees, nesting osprey and elusive river otters can sometimes be seen. Float through the ghostly remains of a buried forest, where boiling hot mud flows from Mt Hoods Crater Rock buried the forest more than 230 years ago.

Metro scientist Brian Vaughn will guide us through sites where cutting edge salmon restoration projects will soon take place, providing critical habitat for endangered species. Metro naturalist Dan Daly will read tracking stories left behind by hard to find wildlife like red fox, mink and maybe even cougar when we stop for lunch on the banks of the river. It’s an active educational adventure that you won’t want to miss!

This 4 hour float will start and end at Dabney State Park and includes equipment rental, instruction and shuttle to the launch site. Snack provided, bring a sack lunch. Dress for the weather, be prepared to get a little splashed, and make sure you have footwear that can get wet. Cost is $45/ adult, $30/ child under 12 (must be 8 years old to attend), all minors must be accompanied by an adult.
