Outdoor Equity Program – Whitewater Rafting Adventure

July 13 at 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Join the Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture team for another memorable outdoor adventure when we invite the community along on a whitewater rafting excursion on the South Fork of the American River. This is the next in a series of outings funded by a grant from the California Department of Parks & Recreation as part of its Outdoor Equity program.

The adventure, which is in collaboration with H2O Adventures, a very experienced whitewater company, will take place on Saturday, July 13th. The group will meet at 8am in Marysville at the Burrows Center for the Arts, 624 E Street. The charter bus will transport the group to the put-in point on the American River off Highway 49.  This upper stretch of the South Fork provides an action packed ten mile stretch of class II and III rapids. The minimum age to participate is 6 years old with an age limit of 96 years old. Please be aware this can be a physically taxing adventure. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Before getting on the river, safety gear will be provided and there will be a safety talk by the guides to prepare everyone to paddle through rapids like Meat Grinder, Triple Threat, and Troublemaker Rapid (the largest class III rapid on the South Fork of the American River.) This trip typically lasts until about 12:30 and is a great and exciting way to spend the morning. The trip is recommended for beginners as well as more experienced rafters. This trip is limited to 50 people. Participants must register in advance at yubasutterarts.org. The outing is free, but there is a $20 registration fee which will be fully refunded when checking in the morning of the event. Rafting fees, equipment, snacks and water are all provided at no cost to participants



Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture is a membership funded organization. We would greatly appreciate you joining our organization. A Family Membership is $50 annually and is not required but would be appreciated.
