NEW 2019 Klamath River Natural History from a Raft

Klamath River
Photo by K.M. Pyle
Instructors: Craig Tuss and Max Creasy
Date: Saturday, June 1, 2019
Location: Sandy Bar Ranch, Orleans, CA
Tuition: $165 (includes ride in an 8-person raft)

Taught by a forest ecologist and a fish biologist, this field course will be based on the Middle Klamath River. From our home base at Sandy Bar Ranch in Orleans, we’ll carpool to a put-in site east along the river and then drift downriver, following a course parallel to, but away from, Hwy. 96.  As we float, you will learn about the Klamath’s geologic origins and unusual course from high desert to steep, wild canyons. Klamath stream ecology, including the river's unique temperature profile, will be discussed. The group will stop to observe, and possibly even snorkel in, a cold-water pool populated by juvenile fish, see how Sandy Bar Creek's mouth interacts with the flood plain, and learn how local school kids maintain the creek area to allow juvenile fish access the cold water pool. The class will also watch for abundant wildlife possibly including mink, otter, osprey, eagles and turtles. Our instructors will address human history along the river and threats to the river’s health as well as restoration opportunities, including dam removal and the aftermath. We will ride some whitewater but nothing more challenging than Class II.
