This year’s rains and storms have kept the Santa Fe River running high. Depending on conditions, we will attempt to paddle a stretch of the upper Santa Fe River. It can be an adventure since there can be more than a few trees blocking the way. However, the scenery is spectacular, and we should see some wildlife. Be prepared to stop and hike as well to enjoy all the Santa Fe River Preserve has to offer.
RSVPs (contact info below) are required since we need to organize the boats – let us know if you have a kayak or canoe (or any extra boats you would be willing to let others borrow). If you don’t have one, we will try to get something for you.
WHAT TO BRING
Insect repellant, sunscreen, water, and a sense of adventure. We may need to make shortage portages along the route so good footwear is advisable.
ABOUT THE PRESERVE
The Santa Fe River Preserve is part of a much larger effort to protect the entire Santa Fe River and ensure that it stays a complete and viable conservation corridor – for water, wildlife, and recreation.
