Canyonlands Field Institute is a nonprofit that specializes in outdoor education on the Colorado Plateau. We have been around since 1984 taking folks of all ages on river trips on the Colorado, San Juan, Green, and Dolores.
We wanted to let you know about a fun program we are putting on this summer for 7 - 12 grade students. Our annual Youth River Skills Program happens from July 27 - 29 here in Moab where we will float from Dewey Bridge down to Rocky takeout on the Moab Daily. This program was developed to introduce youth to the many aspects of rafting including river ecology, river dynamics, paddling and rowing techniques, equipment rigging, how to maneuver different types of boats, and important river safety and rescue methods.

We only have a few spots available, but wanted to share the opportunity to the broader boating community! If you have any questions about the program or what we do feel free to send us an email at [email protected]
