RRFW Riverwire Grand Canyon Wiki Now Online

RRFW Riverwire – Grand Canyon Wiki Now Online
May 8, 2007

River Runners for Wilderness is pleased to announce our new online resource for planning a self-guided rafting journey through Grand Canyon National Park.

Based on the popular “Wikipedia” format and called “Rafting Grand Canyon”, the web based site is a free web-based “how-to” guide for all aspects of river rafting in Grand Canyon. Written by river runners for river runners, the topics include pre- and post-river trip planning information, on-the-river information, the Grand Canyon National Park river runner orientation video, and a resources section. Visitors can read from beginning to end or search on a particular topic of interest.

Anybody wanting to update or add information can simply set up a user ID and password for the site, then go to the topic you are interested in and click the “discussion” tab. Discussions will be read by the editors and appropriate content added to the topic.

Jo Johnson, Co-director of River Runners for Wilderness, says the concept is simple. “This RiverWiki is a work in progress about rafting Grand Canyon. The wiki style allows users to participate, learn from others, and share information, so it will constantly evolve. The site is able to adapt to on-the ground changes as they occur and includes a wide array of topics and alternatives.”

The RiverWiki has an eleven person editorial board that will edit readers’ comments and add them to the site. The editorial board consists of Steve Christenson, Hazel Clark, Mary Fleishman, Jo Johnson, Tom Martin, Tom Robey, Jenny Russell, Len Thurman, Nancy Seamons, Richard Stoops, and Kerry Walsh.

The Rafting Grand Canyon web site is at Main Page - Rafting Grand Canyon and is a free service to river runners, sponsored by River Runners for Wilderness. Check it out today—read, join, contribute and tell your friends to make this the best source of Grand Canyon river running information anywhere.
