Every year lots of outdoor enthusiast enjoy the day recreating along the river, and cleaning up trash at the same time. As always, there will be lots to do for boaters and non boaters. River stretches are rated class 2-4. The last 2 years proved that we will boat no matter the flow! Hiking and ground crew sections are available from flat trail to adventurous river corridor

Registration goes from 9:30-11 AM at the Headworks, and Kanasket-Palmer State Park from 9am- 11:30AM. Help us clean up the Green River and keep it one of the most beautiful rivers you can raft.  UPDATE:  There will be a short registration setup at Flaming Geyser at 10AM-10:05AM.   Pass the clip board along.  It will go with a boater to the Soos Creek Takeout.
