FYI- this just arrived in my email from Dino:
As we work through this unpredictable and rapidly changing situation, health and safety is our number one priority. We are committed to continuing support for our communities and fulfilling our missions as we all work together to minimize the impacts and spread of COVID-19.
A closure order of the Green and Yampa rivers is currently in place. Your launch reservation is not affected at this time; however, your reservation may be cancelled in the future. Local managers are continually monitoring and assessing the situation and are cancelling future reservations 2-3 weeks prior to the launch date. At this time, Dinosaur National Monument has NOT ordered cancellation of any noncommercial river trips beyond May 20, 2020. You are free to keep your river permit and if you choose to do so, it will remain effective and will be cancelled if the river closure is extended. If you wish to keep your permit, we don't need any information from you.
If your reservation is cancelled, all prepaid fees will be automatically refunded, and you are eligible for a rollover of your launch date for the 2021 season. Consideration for a rollover permit will only apply to reservations created before April 15, 2020.
We understand planning for your upcoming noncommercial river trip may feel extremely challenging due to the fact that much is unknown. We are working hard to develop plans to re-open various park operations in phases while addressing safety concerns related to COVID-19, but at this time we do not know when river trips will be allowed to continue.
We understand that this is an unprecedented situation, and that people are affected in many ways. If you wish to cancel your permit reservation during this period of uncertainty, you are also eligible for a rollover of your launch date for 2021 (if your permit was reserved prior to April 15, 2020). If you wish to cancel your permit and launch instead in 2021, email [email protected]
with your request. Be sure to include your name and daytime phone number. Rollovers will be for the same date only; no exceptions.
