Now, more than ever, rhinos need our help. Statistics show that more than one rhino is illegally poached daily in South Africa alone. Even though we are far away from Africa and Asia, we can all still make a difference.
This fundraiser has made it possible to help protect all five species of rhino through programs in both Africa and Indonesia. In addition, the BFR program is now contributing to cheetah conservation in Kenya, Africa.
Itching to kayak the San Rafael, San Juan, or other Western river but want to get your skills down first? Inflatable kayaks are a great way to learn how to paddle. Sturdy and forgiving, these craft allow beginners to feel comfortable on the river and advance quickly with their paddling skills. This introductory class will provide students with training in river safety, paddling strokes, reading whitewater, river rescue, and learning about and caring for inflatable kayaking equipment. Please join us for a fun day of paddling on the Weber River, just 45 minutes from SLC. This class I to II stretch of river is of appropriate challenge for new paddlers. Small rapids and rock gardens will provide us with plenty of opportunity to practice our paddling skills.Call 801-587-5433, lifelong.utah.edu
Location: TBA – Note: Students will be notified where to meet before class to caravan to the Weber River.
