Bowling For Rhinos @  Olympus Hills Lanes

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.

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
