Each year FOR trains new whitewater guides an 9-day training. No experience needed.
We seek volunteers who want to protect rivers through connecting people to hands-on personal experiences. You will learn how to talk about issues facing our rivers, read the river, maneuver a paddle boat, move and store gear, gain a background on water issues and the history of rafting on the American River.
You’ll build and strengthen your leadership abilities, learn to whitewater raft guide, improve communication, and gain confidence all at the same time.
Join us today!
