Immerse yourself in the ecology of the Wild and Scenic portion of the Illinois River and see how last year’s Klondike Fire has impacted the river’s forested slopes. We’ll ride large rafts through dramatic canyons, red rock rain forest and serpentine landscapes. We’ll witness how natural processes, geology and human influences – from native tribes to Chinese settlers to European miners—have shaped this unique island of biodiversity, ranked as the Rogue River’s largest and most fish-productive tributary. As we ride the river’s spring course, we’ll also identify plants and animals found along the way. Topics covered include geologic formations, stream ecology, river morphology, endemic plants and biodiversity, human history and impact. Rafts and guiding provided by Rael Hirning.
