The free slide shows will be open to the public and feature beautiful vistas illustrating Grand Canyon hikes you can do from the river and exciting river running shots. This timely presentation will also cover the highly controversial Colorado River Management Plan. Grand Canyon planners have gathered over 50,000 comments for the CRMP, and the next stage-the Draft Environmental Impact Statement--is about to be released. The spectacular wilderness qualities of Grand Canyon hang in the balance. This slideshow is of vital importance to any canyon lover hoping to visit the Colorado River in Grand Canyon and to get educated for the upcoming CRMP public scoping meeting to be held in the Salt Lake City area.
River Runners for Wilderness would like to thank the Eric Spreng and the REI stores for their support.
