Rivers run through some of the most beautiful places in the entire world, national parks, wildlife habitats, and stunning towering canyons with side hikes where you can explore traces of the past. The only way to access many of these places is by way of the river, which is why getting a raft opens the door to more new adventures and experiences than you could ever imagine.
There are several raft manufacturers in the U.S., but there's one that we want to call attention to, Rocky Mountain Rafts. They've truly created something special and we couldn't be more excited to welcome them as a founding partner of Protect Our Rivers.
Since 2011, Rocky Mountain Rafts has been creating rafts that excel at dependability, durability, and style and are offered at a price point that doesn't break the bank. Our team can also attest that RMR goes above and beyond to help and support their customers.
What we love most is that these aspects of their business model serve a much bigger purpose: to help people experience the magic and beauty of rivers for themselves.
In addition to making it easier for people to own a raft and get out on the river, they are making a significant investment in the future of river health, so future generations have a chance to experience the same things we do now. With that said, we couldn't be more excited that Rocky Mountain Rafts is joining us and supporting us as a founding partner.
"I think I'm a pretty good example of how a river trip can change your life,” laughs Sarah Nelson. "People tend to care more about things they've experienced first hand and I think RMR's model of making it easier for people to run rivers is brilliant. What I really admire is they recognize that with access comes responsibility. They're investing in the future health of our rivers and are committed to helping us make a difference."
As rafting increases in popularity and more new boaters get on the river, it's becoming more urgent to educate them on the importance of respecting and protecting river ecosystems and providing them with the tools to do so.
Molly Wolff, Creative Director at Rocky Mountain Rafts, says it perfectly, "We see more and more families getting on the river. Now is the time to show our youth what stewardship and activism look like. If we teach them now, they will continue to lead the charge as adults. We know we all love the river, let's make it even better for the future generations."
Protect Our Rivers and Rocky Mountain Rafts will announce their plans to empower river communities, educate new boaters, and expand volunteer opportunities in the new year.
